This week on TWS: “The perfect commodity” with Allen Sukholitsky, Chief Investment Officer at Masterworks, the leading art investment platform for self-directed investors.

With all the talk about crypto crashing and another week of stock market pain ahead, we thought it would be smart to look into alternative methods of hedging against volatility and uncertainty.

Mr Sukholitsky and I jammed about:

  • Fed rate hikes and an “ever-inflating economic system” from an art dealer’s perspective
  • The investment asset classes that out-perform all the rest in inflationary cycles…
  • The perfect commodity to invest in… Hint: “precious metals can always be mined… but there is only a specific number of Picasso paintings and that’s all… Picasso isn’t painting any more of them… he’s dead.”

Fine art has outperformed as an asset class since Masterworks began in 2017.

P.S. I thought Allen Sukholitsky was pretty good. His head is on straight, and he has a clear idea of how fine art can be used as a method for hedging against inflation, rather than simply “art for the sake of art.” You can watch the full Episode 83 of TWS by clicking here.
