Alternative investments

Alternative investments are investments in products other than using the traditional financial methods.
They include tangible assets such as works of art, whisky or collectors' cars.
Alternative investments are characterised by low dependence on the traditional financial markets.

Why does it pay to invest this way?

- Attractive rates of return (on average 10% - 15% per year), several times the rate paid for conventional deposits

- Market development, free from the vagaries caused by speculation, based on the market forces of supply and demand

- Security of invested funds – concrete goods purchased and owned by the client

Why we are effective?

Every investment market known today has in its history offered exceptional profits from investments made at the right time. This is why, notwithstanding the analysis of trends in the existing markets, we continue to seek new ones, which are still at an early stage of development, in order to offer our Clients solutions which are not only to their advantage profit-wise, but above all, safe due to low prices.


Investing in single malt Scotch whisky is becoming increasingly popular.
Official figures from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have revealed a strong year for Scotch Whisky exports in 2018, with
global growth by both value and volume. In 2018, the export value of Scotch Whisky grew +7.8% by value, to a record £4.70bn. 
We focus on investments in cask whisky which, according to experts, is currently the safest and most attractive form of investing in alcohol.

Why it pays to invest?

- Purchase of physical assets – together with the purchase, the client becomes the owner of specific casks or bottles of whisky

- Significant increase of the investment’s value over several years

- Limited production capacity of whisky in Scotland, coupled with a growing global demand for both blended and single malt brands

- Stable market, not susceptible to the fluctuations of capital markets
