Masterworks is the first company to offer art investment products to the investing public.

Solid customer experience

I travel for a living almost weekly, and I had heard about this amazing new way to invest in Art works and diversify your portfolio with a potential hedge on inflation. It took me a few tries due to my schedule to get the call, and I appreciated their patience with my two missed scheduled calls. Once on they walked me through the big picture first to orient me to the approaches to help newbies like me with zero experience start with some intel and comfort in decision making. From there, the walked me through the setup process and my first trades before ensuring I was comfortable with self-service while also reminding me how to get help on any step need quickly. Well done MasterWorks entire team, well done!

Know your investment strategy

There are complaints and negative reviews I read about the illiquid nature of these holdings as well as the high fees involved. That is absolutely correct but no secret. This is not like public company stock investing. It’s much more akin to private venture investing - a long term hold with no control of the exit timeline. You have to go in with the right mindset and perspective. If that’s part of your investment strategy, then data shows that this asset class has historically performed quite well and is less correlated to general macro economic swings than most other asset classes. So it’s a pretty solid complement to a diversified portfolio.

Invested in Banksy!!!

5 stars from me l've invested in Banksy!!! Choosing to invest in a Banksy artwork through Masterworks has been an amazing experience. I've followed Banksy's iconic work for years and respect them greatly so being able to own a stake in this creators world is a dream come true, as well as being potentially lucrative.
Masterworks' have really gone above and beyond with their curation of Banksy's work and their expertise in navigating the art market instilled confidence in my investment. The masterworks team provided comprehensive insights into the artwork's historical performance and market trends, adding a whole other level to my appreciation for Banksy.
