Let our investors speak for us

Accessing artworks usually inaccessible to most investors

The main strength of Matis is to allow small shareholders to access masterpieces of art history, usually inaccessible to most investors - a valuable point for a young investor like myself. Moreover, Matis’ strategy for selecting the artworks is based on a rigorous approach, carried by a team of experts in the art market, with several years of experience. Finally, I appreciate the educational approach of the company, which I could perceive both in my exchanges with the sales team and in reading the supports and informational documents presented for each club deal.

Matis allows investing in a piece of art history.

Thanks to Matis, I was able to easily invest in a high-performing asset class, which is difficult to access directly without in-depth knowledge of the art market and a significant financial envelope. I was convinced by the expertise of Arnaud Dubois and the investment team in their ability to source quality works, coveted by museum institutions and art professionals. The emotional and cultural dimension is also very strong and allows investing in a piece of art history.

Perceive art under a new facet, that of investment

As a collector on a personal level, I was captivated by Matis' value proposition, which allows one to perceive art under a new facet, that of investment. Matis’ selection strategy focused exclusively on world-renowned artists whose value has been established for years, convinced me to take the step and invest in a work by François-Xavier Lalanne.

Investing in recognized artists with a high market value

Matis was recommended to me by an investor friend. I was subsequently convinced by the company's investment strategy, which only proposes investing in recognized artists with a high market value. Through this club deal investment solution, I can diversify my portfolio into an asset class that is weakly correlated with other financial products. In addition, the investment scheme is easy to understand, and the subscription procedures are quick.

Simple and fast investment experience.

Matis is an interesting co-investment solution for building a diversified portfolio by investing in several high-quality artworks, which I would not have been able to purchase alone. Moreover, the investment experience is simple and fast.

Who is Matis?

Matis structures and offers clubdeals dedicated to investments in contemporary art. The company identifies strong trends in the art market to invest in works by the most important artists of the 20th century. Through the issuance of convertible bonds into shares, Matis allows private investors to co-invest in acquisition opportunities usually reserved for art market professionals. The company has a license issued by the Financial Markets Authority, enabling it to offer its investment opportunities throughout Europe. Matis also works with art galleries specializing in the targeted artists, to whom it entrusts the acquired works for resale, aiming for a non-guaranteed target horizon of 2 years.

What is a club deal in art?

A club deal is a method of collective financing where several private investors raise funds to finance a large-scale project. It can be a stock market, real estate, or artistic operation. In art, the club deal is specific to a given work and relies on a dedicatedl egal structure. The investment can be made through the acquisition of shares or bonds. In Matis' case, the instruments used are convertible bonds into shares. Investors can realize a capital gain (not guaranteed) on the resale of the work, targeting a horizon of two years.

What are the risks associated with investing in Matis' club deals?

Investing in contemporary art carries a risk of financial loss and illiquidity if we are unable to sell our work at a fair market value.

Investing in our club deals implies acceptance of these risks by our investors.

What is the target investment horizon for Matis' club deals?

We target an investment horizon ranging from 6 to 36 months for our various works. 80% of the works on our market are sold within two years after their consignment in a gallery, and we anticipate selling our works within this timeframe. However, the sale of our works depends on the interest of collectors, and we cannot commit to a specific sale horizon. In case of failure to sell within 5 years, your securities can be converted at a 1:1 rate by a simple majority decision of the bond holders. This mechanism allows for the re-appropriation of the work and forces its sale at auction, but it is not a guarantee of liquidity.

Why does Matis primarily offer club deals in 20th-century art?

The artistic movements targeted by Matis are as follows:

- Modern art, created by artists from the first half of the 20th century;

- Contemporary art, created by artists after 1945.

These two artistic movements account for nearly 80% of the global art market exchanges. In its acquisition strategy, Matis thus prioritizes works created by emblematic artists of the 20th century due to the dominance of these two artistic trends, a guarantee of liquidity and dynamism in the art market.

Does Matis invest in digital works with NFT certificates?

The non-fungible token (NFT) is a certificate behind which a digital work is authenticated via the NFT. Matis does not intend to invest in digital works as they represent a recent trend in the art market, emerging from the 1990s. Instead, Matis proposes to invest in physical works, created by major 20th-century artists, recognized by museum institutions, purchased by collectors, and promoted by international galleries.Their artistic production spans the 20th century, and it is possible to precisely measure the volume and evolution of the sale/resale value of their works over several decades, beyond ephemeral trends.

Which artists does Matis target in its acquisitions?

Matis proposes to invest in works by major 20th-century artists, recognized by the world's leading museums, promoted by leading galleries, and with a broad collector base worldwide. These are so-called "blue chip" artists, whose work value often exceeds hundreds of thousands of euros, making them hardly accessible to most investors. Among the targeted artists, we can cite Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, Yves Klein, or François-Xavier Lalanne. These artists have profoundly marked the history of art; their available works on the market are diminishing while their value increases, creating a scarcity effect.

How are artworks selected by Matis ?

Matis defines the major current and future trends of the art market and focuses its analysis on the 100 most fundamental artists of the 20th century. Matis then sources its works from art market professionals, such as galleries, dealers, and auction companies.Through this privileged network, our team identifies works we consider undervalued and acquire them. The works are selected for their ability to be quickly resold through major international galleries, specialists in the concerned artist, within a target horizon of two years, and are purchased only after validation by an acquisition committee.

What is Matis' artwork disposal strategy ?

Matis consigns its works to leading galleries, specialists in the concerned artist, capable of promoting the work and valuing it to resell it under the best market conditions. Matis thus collaborates with the world's leading modern and contemporary art galleries (in Europe, the United States, Asia, and the Middle East).

How are Matis-acquired artworks insured?

Artworks selected by Matis for investment are insured from their acquisition to their sale, against theft or destruction.
