Overview

Mintus is a UK-based company that makes art investing easy. The art market outperformed the S&P 500 by almost 3x since 1986. But until recently, opportunities to invest in art have been closed to most investors. Mintus’ team of artworld talent, fund managers and AI engineers source modern masterpieces and make them available to investors as fractional shares.

How you make money

Mintus aims to hold each artwork between 2-7 years and sell once they believe it has reached optimal value. Once an artwork is sold, Mintus distributes the profits to investors, minus fees. Alternatively, investors can sell their shares on the ‘Mintus Secondary Market’ once per year.

How Mintus makes money

Mintus aligns itself with investor interest by only taking fees from the profits generated when an artwork is sold.  This includes a 1% management fee and a 20% performance fee.

Is it safe?

The art market has outperformed the S&P 500 by 240% since 1986, showing a low correlation to traditional asset classes. But past performance is no guarantee of future results. 
 

Mintus only sources authenticated artwork from institutions, galleries, artists or private collectors.
 

The company is also authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 942522) and complies with all the relevant AML checks.

 

All funds transferred to Mintus are held by Kin Capital Partners LLP - an independent, FCA-authorized custodian. If for any reason the acquisition of an artwork is not completed, all funds will be returned to investors.

How You’re Taxed

Capital Gains

Capital Gains

Income Tax

Income Tax

If you are investing on an art investment platform like Masterworks, where you own a fraction of or a percentage of an artwork:

  1. Sale of artwork: If the artwork is sold, you receive the equivalent of a dividend. Your profits are then taxed as income.
  2. Secondary market: If you trade your shares on the secondary market, your profits are taxed as capital gains.

For those of you selling artwork you purchased, art investments are classified as ‘collectibles’. Gains on art held for one year or less are taxed as ordinary income—the same tax treatment as short-term capital gains (STCGs). Gains on art held more than one year are taxed as long-term capital gains, except the maximum tax rate for capital gains on collectibles is higher than other assets at 28%.
