Stanley Gibbons fund ready to go

Stamp dealership Stanley Gibbons said its long-awaited philately investment fund will go on a sales roadshow in September and launch a month later, allowing Britons to invest in a portfolio of rare stamps.

Half-year pre-tax profit at the company rose 8% to £1.8m, with chairman Martin Bralsford claiming: "The enduring strength of the rare stamp market and lack of correlation with traditional asset classes is evident yet again."
