how it works

Source

Artworks are sourced from institutions, galleries, artists or individuals. Prior to platform listing, the artwork’s market value is determined by industry-leading, independent experts and it is authenticated.

Fractionalise

Shares in the fund holding the artwork are made available to qualifying investors in compliance with relevant regulations.

Manage

Artwork is kept in special facilities or free zones in Delaware, Geneva or London. Valuations are conducted twice a year by independent experts until the work is sold.

Sell

A ‘Mintus Secondary Market’ will be available to investors in permitted locations. Mintus will auction or privately sell artworks, typically between 2-7 years after Mintus’ date of purchase, once we believe they have reached optimal value.
