Masterworks – Invest in the world’s most valuable paintings.
Masterworks https://www.masterworks.io/ -For the first time ever, Masterworks.io is allowing investors to buy and
trade shares in great works of art.
Blue-chip fine art has been a superior risk-adjusted asset class for decades, outperforming the S&P 500 by 250% since the year 2000 with low degrees of volatility. However, these great works of art generally cost more than $2 million per painting, making them available only to the ultra- wealthy.
Masterworks takes balance sheet risk to purchase great works of art by collaborating with Christies, Sothebys, and Phillips. After purchasing a painting, we place it in an LLC and file it with the SEC to go public. This allows institutions, accredited and non-accredited investors to purchase shares of multi-million dollar, investment grade artwork.
Through the development of a trading platform that we plan to release in 2019, investors will be able to buy and trade shares in works of art just as they would with companies on the stock market.
