Don’t make the same mistake my father made…
In 2008, my dad turned 60. After 44 years of hard work, he was ready to retire.
He was looking forward to doing all the things in life he loved the most: taking extended vacations… playing guitar in his local bar… walking his beloved dog… taking in a round of golf with his friends.
I think he deserved his retirement.
But as you know, 2008 was not a good year for pension funds.
The banking system had just collapsed. Stocks had plummeted in value all over the world.
My dad’s pension fund wasn’t worth what he thought it would be. He had no choice but to continue working — for another 10 years.
Where he went wrong was entrusting his entire retirement to his pension fund.
See, no matter how diversified your investments are within your retirement fund, ultimately, they’re all connected.
This is not your pension fund’s fault — regulations demand they only invest in traditional investments.
These investments are all dependent on the economy as a whole. You will always be playing Russian roulette with global financial and political events.
If your retirement happens to coincide with a time when things are bad, you won’t have the funds you expected, and you might have to keep working for a few more years — like my dad.
Thankfully, he’s now retired. And I’m pleased I was able to help him finally do it.
Let me explain.
The Perfect Asset to Provide for Your Retirement
It’s all about true diversification…
And an investment not correlated with the economy. An investment that is proven to perform well in times of recession — and even better in times of high inflation.
Using my 20 years of expertise, I helped my dad invest some of his retirement fund in rare postage stamps.
The power of this alternative investment as a retirement planning vehicle is quite astounding…
It all hinges on the historical fact that rare stamps have increased in value by an average 10% compounded per annum over the past 65 years (which is as far back as my data go).
It is for that reason I recommended — first to my dad and now to you — to put a monthly amount into a noncorrelated asset (like rare stamps) to protect and diversify your retirement fund.
Here at JustCollecting, we have developed a way to help you build your collection.
Normally, the minimum entry point investment is $10K. But with JustCollecting’s “Build a Collection” strategy, you only need a minimum investment of $1,000, followed by contributions of $100 a month.
We then use that money to purchase rare stamps on your behalf — rare stamps of premium quality, those with a history of appreciating by 10% per annum.
You can stop your monthly contributions at any time. You’re not tied into any long-term contract. But once you see how this works for you, I doubt you will want to stop.
Turn $100 a Month Into $25,000 a Year — for Life
If you were to start contributions from the age of 30, you could potentially have a stamp retirement fund worth more than $250K by the age of 60.
And here’s what that could mean for you after you retire:
When I produced these calculations, I had to check them twice. I even got our finance director to make sure I hadn’t made a mistake.
It’s incredible — total contributions resulted in a rare stamp pension pot of nearly $260K.
Now, with most pensions, you buy an annuity with the value of your pension fund on retirement. This guarantees you an income for your remaining years. It also means your fund ceases earning when you retire.
But when you Build a Collection, your fund keeps on growing after you retire. You can take $35,000 in year one, followed by $25,000 a year for the rest of your life. (If you live until you are 100, you will have taken over $1 million!)
But the best bit… When you die, your fund will still be worth over $260K. In other words, you get a comfortable retirement and your descendants get a valuable legacy.
Your returns represent capital gains that benefit from lower tax rates of 0%, 15% or 20% on profits you make, depending on your taxable income and filing status.
JustCollecting also provides secure storage and specialist third-party insurance coverage for your collection free of charge — even as you make annual contributions to build your collection. And there are no hidden costs or service charges in building your rare stamp collection.
Plus, you don’t need to invest just the minimum. An investment of $10,000, followed by $1,000 a month for 30 years could result in annual retirement income of $250K and a portfolio legacy value of $2.6 million.
That’s why one national newspaper called this strategy “the best retirement plan you’ve never heard of.”
But how reliable is the 10% per annum growth rate?
Let’s look at some hard facts…
A Solid History of Increasing Value
The GB30 Rarities Index provides a useful barometer of the historical prices of rare stamps. Prices can be tracked back to 1954. The index shows an average compound growth rate of 10% per annum over the past 65 years.
When looking at five-year performance intervals, the worst period was 1980–85, when the index only went up 10%.
The best five-year period was immediately before this between 1975–80, when the index recorded growth of almost 600%.
That was the last time we had high inflation rates, in the late 1970s.
Historically, the value of rare stamps has grown considerably during periods of high inflation. Holding rare stamps as part of your retirement fund could provide a valuable hedge against inflationary risk.
Let me now share with you a few examples of rare stamps we currently have ready for you to start building your collection…
The truth is — no one knows whether rare stamps will appreciate in value at this rate forever. All we do know is what has happened throughout history.
For me, that’s safe enough. And as good as it gets in the investment world.
Don’t make the same mistake my dad made. Start your rare stamp collection today and retire when you want to.
