Silver, Wine, Art and Gold (SWAG backronym)

"Silver, Wine, Art and Gold” form the backronym (back-acronym) for the word “swag.” SWAG (2011), a book by Joe Roseman, both coined and popularized the term. Roseman argues that “SWAG” (silver, wine, art and gold) are the best assets to possess in times of financial uncertainty. A Reuters article about ‘SWAG” in August 2012 helped to popularize the term in many newspapers and on many financial blogs.


SWAG by Joe Roseman
Silver. Wine. Art. Gold. SWAG assets that share a similar asset DNA. Assets that have risen in price materially over the last decade notwithstanding the bursting of the internet bubble, the subsequent recession, the credit crisis, the deepest recession in living memory and now the European sovereign debt crisis. Every investor needs to explore the benefits of having some SWAG assets as a part of their savings.

Slide 9: The investment case
This demand/ supply dynamic makes for a compelling investment case. The Liv-ex Fine Wine Investables Index has achieved a compound annual return of almost 15 per cent over the last 20 years – better than any of the other so-called SWAGs, which stands for Silver, Wine, Art and Gold. (All of these collectibles have done well since 2008.)

And now Investment Week’s Joe Roseman has coined a catchy handle for this trend:

“Everyone,” Roseman advises his well-heeled readers, “needs some SWAG.”

The four elements of SWAG — silver, wine, art, and gold — have “all appreciated quite sharply” over the past decade, notes Roseman, despite “two global recessions, a severe global banking crisis, a credit crunch, and (generally speaking) highly volatile and mostly negative equity market performance.”

Adding SWAG to your portfolio
By James Saft
Fri Aug 10, 2012 11:07am EDT
(Reuters) - For investors looking at a grim decade of money printing and financial repression, it might be time to get some SWAG in your portfolio.

SWAG, as in Silver, Wine, Art and Gold, are real assets that might just outperform if official policy causes the money supply to surge.

This is the idea of Joe Roseman, who says SWAG will do very well over what could be a very troubled next decade.

Silver, wine, art and gold – or SWAG – may be the solution for investors looking to protect their wealth in the coming years according to perceptive Reuters Columnist, James Saft.

In an interesting article and an interesting video for Reuters, Saft coins the term “Investing 201” which means having SWAG in your portfolio in order to protect investors from “a grim decade of money printing and financial repression.”

SWAG, as in silver, wine, art and gold, are real assets that might just outperform if official policy causes the money supply to surge according to Saft.

Treasury Wine adds SWAG for investors
By Regan Pearson - Tuesday, August 21st, 2012
If you’re not the type of investor who gets excited about re-insurance rates, banking industry write downs, or the ‘infrastructure’ sector, perhaps a portfolio with a bit more SWAG will be more down your alley.

‘SWAG’ sounds like the brainchild of an American rapper, but is actually an acronym for Silver, Wine, Art and Gold; a set of alternative ‘asset classes’ argued by author Joe Roseman to potentially prevent the ravages of inflation and current low returns on bonds around the world.
