Owning or collecting artwork feels inaccessible for many people. From issues of how to properly store a painting to not knowing the nuances of one artist over another, it’s an asset class that’s been dominated by wealthy individuals.
Leon Benrimon wants to see that change. He believes artwork – and other forms of collectibles – should be accessible to everyone.
Leon is the vice president of assets at StartEngine. And he’s excited that StartEngine Collectibles is giving retail investors the chance to start learning about and investing in collectibles like art, watches, wine, and more.
In this episode of Inside Startup Investing, Chris Lustrino and Leon talk about the joys of collecting and the ways that collectible investing is changing. Topics include how collectible investing can be a stepping stone to becoming a collector, upside potential, how collectibles perform in economic downturns, and more.
