Rich Like Royalty
Once limited to the wealthy elite, the world’s most secretive asset can now be yours
It is the most concentrated form of wealth on the planet. Until now, it was the stuff of royalty — only accessible to commoners with a glimpse through the secure glass of a museum.
For centuries, it has been the iconic asset of the super elite — handed down from one generation to the next. It was the ultimate way to hide wealth from the greedy hand of the government.
But thanks to a recent twist in the supply chain, the diamond market is the hottest sector in the “unconventional economy.” It doesn’t matter if you have $50 to invest or $50 million… the opportunity is the same. Diamonds will double your money in the next three years. Until now they’ve been out of the grasp of the average investor, but soon royalty-grade loose diamonds will become the backbone of the strongest, most-diverse ortfolios. It makes perfect sense. Loose diamonds have almost no connection to the conventional market. Their values are not derived by a convoluted earnings report or a rigged government statistic. Instead, each diamond is unique — with its own characteristics and value. Even more important, though, diamonds — no matter how we invest in them — are moneymakers.
You will never hear this from your typical shepherd (the brokers and talking heads that steer the herd), but diamond prices have increased an average of 15% per year since 1949 — nearly twice the return we expect from the S&P 500. And get this. One subset of the diamond market has reportedly never lost value.
Over the past 35 years, colored diamonds have doubled in value every six to seven years — and now the returns are getting stronger by the day.
