Where to Invest $100,000 Right Now According to Bloomberg Experts

Today, investors like you and me face a dilemma. The global pandemic is disrupting markets, making promising investments even harder to find.

Bloomberg asked investment experts where they’d personally place $100,000 right now.

They overwhelmingly recommended alternative assets like art.

After all, the ultra-wealthy have placed their bets on art for centuries.

Peggy and David Rockefeller’s art collection sold for a record $835.1M—the most ever at auction.

Today, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Eric Schmidt are all active art collectors.

In fact, 66% of billionaire collectors allocate 10–30% of their portfolios to art.

And, the total wealth held in art is set to explode by another $1 trillion by 2026.

Now you can allocate to this exciting asset class with Masterworks.io, the first company to securitize iconic works by artists like Monet, Banksy, and Basquiat.
