INVESTMENT IN PHILATELY – A NEW ASSET CLASS

INVESTMENT IN PHILATELY – A NEW ASSET CLASS

Investor Profile

Interest in stamp investment has increased significantly in recent years. Auction realizations illustrate just how good an investment in stamps or postal history can be, with increasing demand underpinning an active market.

Philatelic investment can be undertaken as an attractive alternative within a balanced portfolio of more traditional investment vehicles with the pleasure of ownership as an additional benefit.
Investment grade stamps are a highly portable, valuable commodity underpinned by a global collector base.

Investor Profile

Stamp investors can be broadly divided into three categories.

Pure Investors

Pure Investors are simply that: just interested in investments and making money from them. The underlying motivation is purely to see a return on one’s investment. The Pure Investor is unlikely to be interested in the overall aesthetics of the items he is purchasing and will have no need to ‘enjoy them’ through having them available to look at and display. The security of a bank vault may be far more appealing.
Pure Investors may not necessarily engage in direct ownership but invest in the shares of the few listed companies that comprise the philatelic investment market. Their objective is to make money from the increase in demand for investment grade stamps whether owned directly themselves or indirectly via a third party.

Pure Investors are likely to lack market knowledge and will therefore be reliant on others to guide their investment choices.

Investor/Collectors

Somewhere between the Pure Investor and the Stamp Collector comes the Investor/Collector. Here, the objective is to make money but to have fun in doing it, even if it is at the expense of their investment objective.

The art of collecting becomes important, there is a genuine interest is what is acquired and stamps may well be purchased that do not have investment potential but enhance the enjoyment of the activity. Investor/Collectors help underpin the market demand in investment grade stamps and may well find that their collection turns out to be a very inactive investment as their attraction to their portfolio becomes greater than the desire to part with its contents.

Stamp Collectors

Stamp Collectors underpin the market and are the backbone of philately.

Most will have started collecting without a second’s thought as to investment potential. Paramount is the pleasure and enjoyment from the hobby; any incidental gain in value is a happy by-product of the collecting process. Whether the Stamp Collector’s interests lie in collecting a single country, era or theme, they are likely to want to acquire examples that match that objective, irrespective of value and cost. The more expensive items will certainly be harder to acquire and may or may not have investment potential. But that is the not the point: the joy is in the collecting.

Pure Investors are likely to be frowned upon as simply pushing up the price of stamps which may well become unattainable to the Stamp Collector. However, whilst not necessarily having the funds of the Pure Investor, the Stamp Collector invariably has the advantage of knowledge gained through years of study and will be far more able to spot bargains when they occur.

News – Stamps set to generate greater revenue for India Post

Even as India Post continues to rely on speed post and parcels to generate the bulk of its sales, it is trying to generate new revenue streams by monetizing its stamps.

Philately, the collection and study of postage stamps, is becoming more popular, not just among individuals but also businesses, and is expected to add more money to India Post’s coffers.

The postal department earned about Rs.40 crore in 2015-16 from philately, which includes stamps and stamp-related products, through sales from post offices and its online store called e-post office.

This number is set to rise more than three times to about Rs.140 crore in 2016-17, said S.K. Sinha, secretary, Department of Post.

The major boost to this figure is expected to come from its e-post office and ‘My Stamp’ services.

My Stamp is a customized service that allows organizations and businesses to order bulk printing of stamps, based on their logos. The minimum order value has to be Rs.12 lakh.

Customers who have already used this service include Amazon India, Western Union, Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd and Avila Convent Matriculation Higher Secondary School, said Sinha.

While the department generated Rs.1.38 crore from My Stamps in 2015-16, it expects to clock a revenue of Rs.60 crore this this fiscal year from the service, he added.

Nearly 7 lakh Surya Namaskar stamps were pre-booked through e-post office and till Tuesday the stamp has generated more than Rs.27 lakh in revenue.

While e-post office generated a total of Rs.65 lakh worth of sales in 2015-16, between April to June it has already touched Rs.67 lakh.

UPPS sold philatelic products worth $5.5 million (Rs.37 crore) in 2015. The postal service also received $618 million (Rs.416.5 crore) worth of orders for stamps and stamp products in 2015.

The Indian postal department is also trying to popularize philately among students and has written to the Human Resource Development ministry to include a lesson on philately from fifth to seventh standard classes. (Source:-livemint.com)
