While diversification and differentiation apply to investments in general, the fact that in times of global pandemic, it is mandatory to invest in safety. “Safe haven” means a point of reference in financial storms, an asset with constant intrinsic value over time, an asset that physically incorporates an immutable value with the price level, in the event of economic default or when it breaks out epidemic. In the past, money left in the bank or money invested in government bonds was considered safe, but with the recent regulations of the European community, unfortunately today, it is no longer so. With the rescue of a financial institution on the verge of bankruptcy called “Bail-in” which provides that a bank in crisis at risk of default may force its creditors or simple account holders to participate in saving it in a nutshell through special notes called clauses “Cac “, or for serious public finance reasons where the Treasury can revise promised interest and return on invested capital, there is little to be happy about. Even in these cases, it will be a safe haven to protect from bad surprises, remaining with a constant value over time without suffering external factors and probably its value will rise again, generating greater demand on the market. In times when many families, even old and wealthy, need liquidity, we are witnessing the investment race and those who are taking advantage of this situation are getting fantastic opportunities in the purchase of safe-haven goods. Gold, jewels, diamonds, rare watches of famous brands with original guarantees and boxes, currencies, revaluable life insurance policies, stamps, ancient coins, collectibles, vintage cars, supercars in limited editions, paintings by famous artists, fine wines, antique furniture and of course, the safe haven goods par excellence such as real estate and land today represent the safest and most profitable opportunities. Not having as its first aim to increase its capital, investment in safe haven assets may not have a speculative value, but it will be able to protect it in cases of economic crisis, monetary devaluation and in case of country default. Today as never before, among safe investments, the one on safe-haven assets is certainly the best, because now we have to get used to living with long financial crises, on condition of knowing and choosing well according to your capital and your needs. The real estate market? The real estate market always goes on, in fact houses, premises, boxes and garages also withstand prolonged crises, while the purchase of a land does not betray and if in the future it will be destined for something else, it will multiply its value.
