Welcome to the World of Avarae|
Avarae is the UK’s only publicly traded specialist Investment Company dedicated to investing in rare and high quality coins. It provides access for institutions and individuals wanting to diversify their investment portfolios away from the traditional asset classes such as equities, property, bonds etc without the need to be an expert in the coin collecting sector. Its strategy is to invest actively in the coin collecting sector in various countries across the world. It is currently building up an impressive portfolio of coins which it intends to hold both for the long term (i.e. more than one year), in order to achieve long term capital growth for its shareholders, and also the short term, in order to take advantage of short term trading opportunities, as the market for rare coins continues to grow.
