Investment Risk Series: Issue 3

Updated: Dec 6, 2023

Market Interest


So far, we’ve discussed how much is required to invest in Investment-Grade Fancy Color Diamonds and reviewed the risks associated with this type of investment.


This week, we will consider different types of investments within the commodities markets and within the FCD market itself. In the coming weeks, we will continue to discuss various risk strategies to finish the year off with low-risk investments in mind.


We have a broad range of newsletter recipients - from first-time investors to seasoned clients who have worked with us for many years, so we will be addressing various investor ranges throughout this series.


Next week’s blog: Planning for the worst


Decide which markets you’re interested in exploring


Each investment journey is unique and varies from investor to investor. Some investors may decide they don’t want to be landlords or prefer not to deal with property maintenance, while others may own multiple units. Additionally, some investors have achieved substantial financial success through investing in cryptocurrency, while others may question its legitimacy. The investment landscape offers a multitude of niches and markets, each with its level of mainstream recognition.


If you’re considering investing in gold, you need to decide how to go about doing so. It is a bit more complex than investing in FCDs. With gold, you should decide if you’d like to invest in gold physically: either gold bullion, gold coins, or gold jewelry. You can also purchase stocks in gold miners, gold ETFs, gold mutual funds, or use futures and options.


Ultimately, determining your comfort levels, assessing available resources, and identifying the most suitable investment opportunities are crucial factors when deciding where to allocate your funds.


When considering investment-grade diamonds, not all diamonds are created equal. Here at FCD Invest, we very rarely seek yellow diamonds. The diamond would have to be very special to pursue. When considering colorless diamonds, we only consider D-Flawless, which is in a category of its own.


The main colors we consider are pink (especially Argyle), blue, green, red, and orange. That being said, not every pink diamond is investment-worthy. There are very specific characteristics we look for when considering FCDs for investments, far beyond the 4 C’s. Each year, investment-grade FCDs get harder to find as mine supplies dwindle and the best diamonds get quickly purchased.
