Opportunities are Infinite
Shopping for collectible includes fine art, wines, coins, furniture, ceramics, stamps and cryptocurrency. These are some of the interesting collectibles requiring a different type of price indexing for interpreting the returns on investment. Historically, luxury collectibles such as fine art was dominated by rich class, and a substantial amount of collectors explored worldwide to buy items, mostly, as a hobby, for fun or as a pastime. Over years people have earned and even lost collectibles but super rich absorb the losses in such investments. In addition, high priced collectibles require proper storage and insurance.
Auctions fetching record price from rare collectibles
In 2018, most high priced auctions witness a number of Chinese luxury buyers. A pink diamond was sold for US$71 million during an auction by a Hong Kong Jeweller, and some rare collectibles such as ceramics and even furniture paid off well in the auction, where a 16th to 17th century furniture was sold by Bonhams at £5.3 million to an Asian buyer.

The investment in art requires proper advisory, valuation, insurance, collection management, portfolio management and risk management. Sale to museums can provide financial benefits and even tax benefits.
