We all get passionate about different things - it is what makes us unique - so it follows that our financial investments reflect personal interests and passions.
From our headquarters in the Isle of Man, the home of the legendary TT races, we have accumulated a great deal of expertise in the ownership and administration of "passion" assets.
The structures we establish and administer are built around the needs of each particular owner. Our advice considers the different purposes of the assets and whether the vehicles are for personal use, museum exhibits or as mid to long-term investments.
Classic cars, modern limited-edition supercars and vintage motorbikes have proved to be good alternative investments with a number of ILS World private clients being attracted to them. The Coutts Passion Index began in 2005 and its 2019 edition reported over the life of the Index, classic cars have yielded the best return at 245.8 per cent.
Our committed and qualified specialists provide practical and prudent advice on the most appropriate asset protection services for all types of luxury assets. The team is experienced at liaising with dehumidified storage facilities, insurers, transporters, importers, restorers and vehicle service providers for on-going maintenance.
Due to the complexity of managing such a luxury asset, where necessary we partner and work in collaboration with external accredited experts and acknowledged industry professionals to ensure we are providing our clients with the best advice.
