The minimum investment required on Mintus for art investment opportunities is $3,000, with investment amounts typically ranging from $15,000 to $100,000.
Investing in Mintus carries risks such as market volatility affecting art values, limited liquidity options until the secondary market launches, potential regulatory changes impacting investment practices, operational challenges, and the subjective nature of art valuation.
Mintus plans to introduce a secondary market feature, which is currently marked as "coming soon". This future addition aims to enhance liquidity by allowing investors to sell their shares in artworks to other users, although it's not yet available.
Mintus targets an 8.9% annual growth rate for investments, though actual returns may vary due to market conditions and art performance.
Investments through Mintus generally have a long-term horizon, often spanning several years, due to the nature of art appreciation and market trends. Exact duration may vary based on specific artworks and market conditions, with potential for earlier liquidity once the secondary market is introduced.
Mintus allows both individual investors and institutions to invest in artworks. Individual investors need to qualify as "high net worth individuals", "sophisticated investors", or "accredited investors" and pass an appropriateness assessment. Institutions like wealth managers and family offices should contact Mintus directly for specific investment options.
Groundfloor enables individuals to begin investing in real estate with a minimal initial requirement of only $10.
Investing on Groundfloor involves credit risk from borrower default, market risk due to real estate market fluctuations, liquidity risk as investments are tied up until loan maturity without a secondary market for early exit, regulatory risk from changes in laws affecting real estate and crowdfunding, and platform risk related to operational disruptions or cybersecurity threats.
On Groundfloor, liquidity is tied to the term of the real estate loans, which range from 6 to 18 months. Investors' funds are committed until the loan matures and the borrower repays.
Groundfloor's loans are graded from A to G, with interest rates ranging from 5.5% to 25.5% annually, based on risk. A diversified portfolio across all repaid loans to date would have earned a 10.72% annualized net return.
