Billionaires wanted it, but 54,578 everyday investors got it first… and profited

When incredibly rare and valuable assets come up for sale, it's typically the wealthiest people that end up taking home an amazing investment. But not always

One platform is taking on the billionaires at their own game, buying up and securitizing some of history’s most prized blue-chip artworks for its investors. In just the last few years, its investors have realized annualized net returns of 17.8%, 21.5%, 35% and more from these opportunities. 

It's called Masterworks. Their nearly $1 billion collection includes works by greats like Banksy, Picasso, and Basquiat, all of which are collectively owned by everyday investors. When Masterworks sells a painting – like the 16 it's already sold – investors reap their portion of the  net proceeds.

It's easy to get started but offerings can sell out in minutes. However, as a trusted partner, readers can skip the waitlist to join with this exclusive link.

Performance of exited investments is not representative of artwork that has not yet sold and past performance is not indicative of future results. See important disclosures at masterworks.com/cd
