With the growing consumerism of society, the desire and ability of people to own luxurious, special, deadly inaccessible goods grows. In the wake of God, the first mortals can eventually make sense.
The market for luxury goods has literally boomed in recent years, and the purchase of goods used to distinguish and demonstrate social status is still a popular activity among wealthy people. Recently, even those who do not belong to the richest have been dreaming of this segment. Investing in companies that produce luxury goods, however, allows them to increase their own wealth at least a little.
Investors who are trying to make a name for themselves in the luxury goods market are based mainly on interesting data from recent years. The volume of the luxury goods market has been regularly growing in double digits in recent years and should exceed USD 150 billion by the end of the decade. Thanks to the strong global economy, the number of very wealthy people (owning property without real estate exceeding USD 1 million) and their property is growing rapidly (by 2011 it should exceed a total of USD 51 trillion). Especially in countries like India and on, the number of gods who are willing to pay large sums of luxury is growing rapidly. Companies producing luxury goods react to this situation and still focus on these markets.
The demand for luxury goods, however, is constantly growing around the world. People who “have it”, practically no matter how many objects their costs, and this very low sensitivity to price changes (inelasticity of demand) in wealthy people, then allows the companies themselves, which offer luxury goods, to achieve a small profit and at relatively low sales volumes. The profit margins of such companies then fluctuate in levels that companies can keep talking about.
The advantage of investing in luxury companies may also be the fact that companies that produce luxury goods represent virtually several sectors in the stock market. These are mainly areas such as copper, various accessories, cosmetics and perfumery, cars, the food industry (especially spirits, vials, etc.) or electronics, and more recently (hotels, golf, etc.).
With input, the risk increases
However, investing in “luxury” companies carries risks. The validity of these companies depends on the breeding of relatively small groups of people. Changes in the mood in these groups can then significantly affect the demand for selected products, although the demand for common products may not change at all. They may also be adversely affected by the economic crisis in luxury companies, when the demand for luxury goods will fall sharply. On the other hand, there is an opinion that the rich will have enough pensions even in unfavorable periods and their demand for luxury may not decrease.

Where to invest
The easiest way to invest in an event, such as LVMH (Louis Vuitton Mot Hennessy SA), Porsche, Tiffany, Christian Dior, Remy Cointreau, Valentino, Davide Campari, etc., is to buy an event on the stock exchange. This opportunity is mediated by securities traders, who today have easy access to the most famous stock markets around the world. Brokerage firms also allow the purchase of structured products (such as index certificates), which allow diversification into more than one security within a single security.
