Parcel2Go Urges Companies To Take Note Of BRC Online Shopping Statistics

An increasing number of consumers from outside the UK are going online to search for products from British firms that must now react, says Parcel2Go.

Britain’s largest online parcel delivery specialist believes businesses have an opportunity to increase the volume of goods they export to customers around the world if only they seize it. Parcel2Go currently helps businesses and individuals in the UK to send more than two million parcels to destinations around the world with courier companies every year.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said research from the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Google had revealed that during the first quarter of 2012, total search volumes from overseas consumers rose by 57 per cent year-on-year.

The BRC/Google search data showed developing countries including Mexico and Pakistan played a significant role in driving traffic to UK sites in the first quarter of the year, with year-on-year growth of 135 per cent and 101 per cent respectively.

Mr Mercer urged companies to take advantage of the fact that more and more foreign shoppers are interested in British brands and products.

He said: “The figures show this is the perfect time for companies here in Britain to capitalise on the interest being shown by foreign consumers in our goods and services. As well as having a strong online presence, businesses must make sure they are clearly offering a range of international parcel delivery options to entice foreign consumers and boost their sales.

“Parcel2Go works with the world’s leading parcel delivery companies and it’s with the help of cheap international courier businesses that firms here in the UK will be able to prosper in new overseas markets.”


AAA claims Gold Prices could Rise to Record Levels

For all those who invested in gold in the past few months, their investment is paying off as gold prices have started to rise once more, says AAA.

Boston, MA, USA, April 21, 2012 — For all those who invested in gold in the past few months, their investment is paying off as gold prices have started to rise once more, says Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

The price of gold is rising off the back of increasing panic in the Eurozone region. Gold is currently trading at around $1,700 per ounce, down from its record high of $1,900 last year, However, analysts, including Anthony Johnson of AAA, claim that gold prices could reach record levels once more in the coming years.

The view is echoed by analysts at Thomson Reuters who earlier this month predicted that gold prices could rise to a record $2,000 per ounce by early 2013 or even late 2012.

“All those who are looking for alternative investment to add to their portfolio should definitely consider precious metals, and particularly gold,” said Johnson, an analysis partner at AAA. The alternative investment advocacy group supports many kinds of alternative asset classes and promotes their value in diversifying portfolios for all kinds of investors.

Angelos Damaskos, who oversees the junior gold Fund in London told the website This Is Money: We believe this will continue to strengthen and even peak above the highs of last year, perhaps reaching $2,000.”

AAA says that investing in alternative asset classes, such as gold, art, timber, antiques and real estate, helps to spread risk in a portfolio. “Investors are increasingly looking to remove their cash from stocks and shares and invest it somewhere that is less volatile and not so tightly correlated with the general economic situation, “ explained Mr Johnson.

AAA supports investment in timber through plantation scheme like the one run by Greenwood Management and other businesses in Brazil, Costa Rica and Canada. “Timber is a less risky asset that continues to physically grow all the time.”

Hanoi, Vietnam, April 21, 2012 – This 9 day food tour with Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) allows travelers to discover the fascinating culture, scenery and food of Vietnam, while staying at the best hotels and dining at wonderful authentic restaurants.

Gourmet travelers travel around Vietnam, from the South (starting in Ho Chi Minh City), to Central Vietnam (with the highlights of Hue and Hoian) and ending in the North (Hanoi).

During the tour, travelers will discover the fascinating landscape and taste traditional Vietnamese food in the best authentic restaurants.

Alternative real estate popular in Europe, says AAA

European investors are increasingly putting their money into alternative real estate, according to AAA.

Boston, MA, April 21, 2012 – European investors are increasingly putting their money into alternative real estate, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

The alternative investment advocacy group said that a recent report from the Wall Street Journal pointed out that institutional investors are buying up unusual property, worth millions, as they look for alternative ways to make money away from the equity markets.

An example cited by the Wall Street Journal is Barclays Capital PLC’s plan to sell a majority stake in university Partnership Programme, which owns 22,000 student accommodation rooms, to Netherlands-based pension fund PGGM for £1 billion.

Another deal, also taking place in the UK, is Blackstone Group’s sell off of student accommodation blocks in London to Round Hill Capital for £400 million.

“There’s no denying that student accommodation is hot property at the moment,” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson. He added, “institutional investors have had their fingers burned through their equity investments and are now looking to buy up property that they think will rise in value in the coming years.”

AAA said that this reflects the general attitude of investors at the moment, as they look to diversify their portfolios by seeking alternative asset classes.

AAA added that individuals can invest in real estate in emerging markets, particularly in Latin America, to get the very best deals in up and coming areas. It also recommends investing in sustainable forestry in these regions, as the entry investment needed is relatively low and returns regularly outperform traditional asset classes.

“Timber prices are set to rise in the coming few years and with opportunities to invest from as little as £10,000 through firms like Greenwood Management, which runs plantations in Brazil, there’s rarely been a better time to invest in forestry,” added Mr Johnson.

The demand for timber is increasing as a result of rapid economic growth in China, Brazil and India.
