Diamonds have long been used as a status symbol and as an investment. We all know a Rolex is expensive, but if someone is wearing a diamond encrusted one, we would guess it cost more. There desirability isn’t just contained to the wealthy. Currently around 93% of all couples choose a diamond ring when getting engaged.
Diamonds are accessible to a massive percentage of the population, but what is their worth to an investor? As an investor it is important to evaluate all the information available to us, then make an educated decision.
Should I consider rough diamond investment?
The diamond industry has been gaining momentum recently, and is being viewed as a wise investment by professional asset management institutions and private investors.
A recent report conducted in collaboration between the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) and Bain & Company shows diamond sales grew by 20% in 2016, maintaining their long track record for providing fantastic returns. In fact, they have increased in value by more than 10% every year since 1938.
The same report also predicts demand for rough diamonds will continue to rise by at least 9% every year until 2020, which will outpace the 2.8% growth in annual supply. We all know what happens when demand increases, but the supply chain can’t keep up. Prices rise.
A Safe Bet
Large rough diamonds are rare, so have always appreciated in value, providing an excellent option for both short and long-term growth. They are also recognised as an internationally accepted currency, as they are extremely high value for their size, easy to transport, and have value globally.
From a psychological perspective owning an actual asset always feels better. The physical item acts as collateral, as opposed to rows of figures on a computer screen. The song tells us ‘Diamonds are forever’, and the fact it is the hardest known naturally occurring material is an added bonus, as you know it’s not going to get destroyed. There is always the chance of diamonds going missing, but even that can be insured against.
The marketing campaigns fuelling demand for diamonds have been amongst the most successful, and producers are currently investing even more money to secure future growth.
We must conclude the long-term outlook for diamonds remains positive. The growth of the middle classes in China and India will help grow demand, while production will remain fairly stable for many years to come.
