Marquis specialises in coloured gemstones and diamonds as tangible assets, forming part of a diverse portfolio to protect wealth.
We view these precious commodities as an attractive alternative investment solution and encourage our clients to consider high-grade gemstones as part of a long-term strategy.
The prime focus is wealth retention with the added potential benefit of a physically beautiful asset and the intention of exceeding medium to long-term financial growth rates for standard assets.
The value of diamonds and gemstones can rise and fall dependent on markets and external factors.
GEMSTONES AS AN ASSET
Diamonds and coloured gemstones have shown strong asset value retention and are largely impervious to short-term financial shocks in a macro economic context, with the ability to provide capital growth when looked at over a medium to long timescale.
Benefits of investing in gemstones:
Increasing demand and limited supply
Tangible asset with intrinsic value
Aesthetic qualities invoke emotional attachment, adaptable to be enjoyed in a piece of jewellery
Bearer of inheritance easily passed to another generation
Uncorrelated to the market, safe-haven asset in times of economic turmoil.
Once you have decided on the amount of capital you wish to invest and funded your account, gemstones and diamonds are procured on your behalf.
After acquiring the assets you will receive a full report of stone selection and allocation, fees, research, and the projected outlook of your portfolio.
The stones are vaulted and insured in a secure facility. Storage in Guernsey offers the natural security of an island and does not levy capital gains tax or hold the imposition of value-added tax or goods and sales tax.
Each portfolio is tailored to your unique requirements. Aware that gemstone investment is not 'one size fits all', portfolios are created personalised to your risk appetite, time horizon, capital level and investment objectives. Throughout your investment term regular reporting keeps you informed of the performance on your portfolio.
