Investing in anything always involves risk, however some investments are more of a “sure thing” than others and if you’re looking for somewhere to grow your money then it would be advisable to look at Hermès bags, and the Birkin in particular.

A recent study published by Baghunter has proven this beyond doubt.  The company compared the performance of the S&P 500, Gold and the Hermès Birkin over a 35 year period and the results were startling.  The average annual return for the S&P 500 was 11.66% (nominal), 8.65% (real); for Gold the return was 1.9% and for the Hermès Birkin it was 14.2%.
