WHAT IS SE Collectibles?


StartEngine Collectibles is the future of alternative assets

StartEngine democratizes investment opportunities in assets once reserved for industry professionals and the affluent, by breaking down the barriers to entry such as marketplace access, industry insights, proper procurement, authentication, storage, and insurance for these alternative assets.


Alternative Investments:


The 2018 U.S. Trust Insights on Wealth and Worth survey on wealthy household’s found that while baby boomers and older investors rely primarily on traditional stocks and bonds, younger investors, especially millennials, are more likely to incorporate alternative strategies into their investment portfolios. 


Millennials allocate 17% to alternatives and assets other than stocks, bonds and cash. It also found that 61% of millennial investors think it’s not possible to achieve above-average returns by investing solely in stocks and bonds anymore, and are looking for alternative investments. For example, the report showed that millennials are the fastest growing segment of art collectors, up 8% year-over-year and comprising 36% of total respondents. We believe these shifts in millennial investing tastes suggest there will be more interest in investing in alternative assets.

You spoke and we listened!

StartEngine is venturing out into this exciting new world of collectibles, and is therefore navigating a new field and business model, and doing the right thing for our investors.

We are happy to announce that after receiving your feedback, we have decided to change our fee structure for StartEngine Collectibles. For all collectibles currently open for investment on StartEngine our fee structure is below:

  • 16.7% Sourcing Fee: Our sourcing fee is approximately 16.67% of the total amount we are seeking to raise and is built into the offering. The sourcing fee covers shipping, expertise, appraisal, and sourcing expenses.

  • 0.5% Yearly Management Fee: This fee is retroactively charged when the object is sold and includes the costs for insurance, quarterly inventory assessment, and annual value appraisal, and storage

  • 20% Profit Split: Lower than some of our competitors who charge as much as 50%.

We do not intend to charge you any other fees related to your collectibles investment!

What Has Changed:

  • Expenses and Fees: Previously expenses and fees were deducted from profits or had to be repaid by investors. We have now included those expenses in our fees and will deduct them from there rather than burden our investors. 

  • Profit split: Previously the profit split was 50/50 to match our competitors, it is now 20% making us one of the leaders in the industry. 

We look forward to implementing this new fee structure and more importantly to listen to you, our StartEngine community. If you have any questions, comments or concerns feel free to email us at assets@startengine.com.
