Reasons to Invest



  • Notoriety: Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe is one of the most recognizable images in art history. Warhol created his first paintings depicting the famous star just after her tragic death in 1962.
  • Scarcity: There are only 250 in the edition, making this work incredibly rare and sought after. As a result, Warhol's Marilyn commands increased attention when offered in the marketplace.
  • Art Market: Fine art is an asset class that has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 over the last 25 years. In a Forbes Article “Art That Beats the S&P, ” of the 25 most liquid artists--a group that includes Renoir, Picasso, Monet, Sargent and Hassam--Warhol wins, hands down. He averages 10.3 percentage points a year better than the rest of the All Art Index.
  • Owner's Bonus Exclusive: This offering is reserved for Owner’s Bonus members for the first 7 days. If you would like to invest during this period, and you are not currently an Owner's Bonus member, you can purchase it during the investment process.
     *If you make an investment but you are not an Owner's Bonus member, your investment will be processed after 7 days, unless the offering is oversubscribed, in which event your investment will be cancelled. After the first 7 days, the offering will be available to all investors.







THE ARTIST


Andy Warhol


A founder of the Pop art movement, Andy Warhol was notoriously obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture and mechanical reproduction. Warhol created some of the 20th century’s most iconic images with those obsessions. From household objects like Campbell’s soup cans and Brillo boxes, to portraits of his contemporary celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, Warhol’s works hang in museums around the world like the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Modern and the Centre Pompidou.


According to the Forbes article, “ More Than 30 Years Since Andy Warhol’s Death, His Works Remain Highly Collectible And Recession-Proof,” Warhol’s works, which include some of the most expensive paintings ever sold, are highly collectable and valuable.

THE Market


Fine art has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 over the last 25 years.

According to the Citi Global Art Market chart, contemporary art has offered an annual return of 14% over the last 25 years, versus a 9.5% annual return from the S&P 500 as of December 2020.  The same article found that contemporary art works created from 1945 through now recorded losses in only 4% of cases, over 3-year investment periods.*

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.

Updated Fee Structure

6 months ago

 

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.
