Cultural Assets

What makes something “vintage?” For us, it’s something that stands the test of time.

Cultural assets are historical and socially valuable artifacts that probably belong in a museum. This is a wide category that includes stuff like antique maps, war memorabilia, movie props, and even stuff from recent decades, like vintage electronics.

We research and write about opportunities from time to time. Follow this asset if you’re interested. We’ll send occasional updates.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.

I've recently discovered the Alts newsletter, and am enjoying it. They don't strictly focus on digital assets, which actually helps it keep it more unique in my opinion.
