From our sponsor:
Where should you invest as a Huntsville resident with a nest egg of $149,000? Thanks to a legal code change, there is a new investment that Huntsville residents need to know about. In fact, Bloomberg asked the experts where they would invest $100,000 right now and many of them picked it.
It may surprise you, but it’s art.
Growing your nest egg with art is nothing new. Wealthy families like the Rockefellers have done for centuries.
- 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)
Translation: Art could be one of the best investments for uncertain times.
Lucky for you, we found Masterworks. This revolutionary platform allows you to invest in the art of Warhol, Monet, Picasso without spending millions.
The best part? Anyone in your area can skip their waiting list*.
