Passion investments gain 2 to 11.7% in May

Once upon a time, collectibles emerged as a captivating avenue for investment. These unique and often tangible items captivated the imaginations of investors and collectors alike, offering not only aesthetic pleasure but also the potential for financial gains. Splint Invest helps private investors diversify their portfolio by providing easy access to alternative investments such as collectibles. 


Collectibles also offer investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolios. By investing in assets outside of traditional stocks and bonds, individuals can spread their risk and potentially achieve better risk-adjusted returns. The inclusion of collectibles can act as a safeguard against market volatility, providing a separate asset class that may perform independently of the ups and downs of the financial markets. 

At Splint Invest, we assess the performance of our assets monthly, and last month’s findings were exceptional, driven by a higher demand in the luxury goods market. Categories such as diamonds, rum, art, handbags, and whisky bottles showed significant growth. Our year-to-date performance increased to a solid 2.39%. 


Which collectibles performed significantly great in May? 

Our 2014 Chateau Mouton Rothschild bottle gained +11.7%, and our wine portfolio: Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 2017 and Co. gained +6.2%.  

Art also held its status at a high level. In May, the painting we offered as an investment, "We were all very thirsty" by Albert Willem increased in value by +2.6% and showed a year-to-date performance of 14.8%. Our latest release, a print from Andy Warhol's Flowers series, saw a value increase of +0.7% and shows an increase in value since the release in March of +4.0%. 

What about the world’s most resilient treasure? In May, all 4 Splint Invest stones increased by +2%. Diamonds are considered a haven in times of crisis as the asset has significant storage advantages compared to gold. 

An often overlooked collectible is Rum. Rum was the second biggest gaining asset category in the month of May; +1.7%. To look at individual bottles; The Dictador - Generations en Lalique - 1976 has in gained +2.7% in May. And as for whisky, Braeburn Whisky, our whisky cask expert, predicted an average projected growth of 14.95% in 2022, which represents a 1.69% increase from 2021. 

Passion assets show no sign of slowing down, as the years pass, the luxury market continues to thrive. The allure of passion investing continues to entice consumers with a desire for exclusivity, emotions, and status. The steadfast growth of the luxury market can be attributed to several factors that contribute to its enduring appeal. Knight Frank's Luxury Investment Index (KFLII) tracks the performance of a theoretical basket of selected collectable asset classes - such as art, classic cars and wine - using existing third-party indices. Each asset class is weighted to reflect its relative importance and value within the basket; and the market is promising. If the future looks anything like 2022, then voila!
