Are you a resident of Rochester-Rochester Hills? looking for an investment alternative to the stock market†
Bloomberg recently asked experts where they would invest $100,000 now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.
Think you can’t afford Picasso? Well, in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of works of art. A company called masterworks.io built the largest platform for buying and selling art effects. You used to be able to buy stocks only from companies like Apple, but with this investment app you can unlock this powerful investment.
This means you can invest in million dollar shares of artwork. And in uncertain times, visual art proves to be a wise investment. This is why:
- Low correlation with stocks according to Citi
- Contemporary art yields 23.2% historically when inflation is >3%
- Contemporary art awards outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)

About me: I was born and raised on Detroit’s Westside, in the hard-working Polish working-class neighborhood of Warrendale. I graduated from Detroit Public School and fought hard to earn my education. My aspiration in journalism came as a young child, when I started following the corruption scandal of former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. My first breakthrough in journalism came with the opportunity to work at the Michigan Journal, mainly covering campus and local news throughout the Dearborn community. I eventually worked my way into news editor. So with first-hand experience growing up in a close-knit neighborhood, I know the importance of breaking news and telling stories that impact local communities. And as the breaking news editor at Patch for Metro Detroit, it’s my job to deliver that news. So feel free to contact me for news tips or your own unique experiences at [email protected]
