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.
