Are you a resident of Patchogue looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?
Bloomberg recently asked experts where they would invest $100,000 right now, and many had the same answer: fine art.
Think you can’t afford a Picasso? In 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which authorized the securing of works of art. A company called Masterworks.io has built the largest platform for buying and selling art titles. In the past, you could only buy stocks from companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock that robust investment.
This means that you can invest in stocks of million dollar works of art. And in uncertain times, it turns out; that the fine arts can be a wise investment. Here’s why:
- Low correlation with equities according to Citi
- Contemporary art historically yields 23.2% when inflation is > 3%
- Contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
