Beyond Stocks and Bonds: This Alternative Asset Could be Your Next $100k Investment


If you keep all of your retirement money in traditional assets like stocks and bonds, you could be leaving tons of money on the table, according to experts.

A recent study by the IMF showed the ultra rich have been able to grow their wealth three-times faster than the average investor because they have access to an exclusive group of alternative investments like private equity, venture capital and even blue chip art.

Investing in art is an exciting opportunity if you’re looking for solid returns outside of the shaky stock market. 

Contemporary art has outpaced the S&P by 131% over the past 26 years.  Plus, it has a low correlation to the stock market, which means it can help add stability to your portfolio in uncertain times.

Until recently, there’s been no way to invest in art unless you had millions to buy a single painting.

But one disruptive startup has changed that, by allowing anyone to invest in fractional shares of multimillion dollar masterpieces from artists like Banksy and Picasso.

Read on to learn more and find out how you can unlock an exclusive offer to skip this platform’s waitlist.

Allocating at least 5% to art can help stabilize your portfolio

The ultra rich have bought and sold blue chip art for centuries, creating a $1.7 trillion asset class in the process.  And that number is only expected to grow – Deloitte predicts an additional $900 billion in capital will flow into the art market by 2026. 

Thanks to Masterworks, you now have the opportunity to grab a slice of that pie.

The best part?  You won’t need to spend your precious time becoming an art expert to cash in.

Masterworks handles the entire process from researching the artists, to negotiating the purchase price, and handling the shipping and logistics.  Making it easy to add art to your portfolio.

Which is great, because their research shows allocating at least 5% of your portfolio to art can help boost your returns and increase the stability of your portfolio.

Masterworks is making art investing more predictable


Masterworks is based in New York and the platform is driven by their industry-leading research team, led by a Harvard data scientist and a former acquisitions expert from Christies.

Together, they’ve created a proprietary database designed to find  “alpha” in the art market, which provides them with an unparalleled quantitative edge when it comes to investing.

So far, it’s been right on the money.  While most asset classes lost value in 2022, Masterworks completed 9 exits, all of them profitable, including net annualized gains of 10%, 14% and 35% on the last few.

This year, they’ve already completed an exit that delivered a 4% net annualized return and a 15.4% net return in just 36 days, equivalent to a 325% net annualized return.

And while most exits don’t happen that fast, Masterworks has already sold a total of $45 million in artworks and distributed the returns to investors.
