thesis

Targeting iconic artworks

Post-war works by iconic artists.

We target artworks valued by museums and art professionals. The goal is to have a very high degree of certainty about the sustainability of their value over time: produced by iconic artists, their availability in the market diminishes while demand increases, creating a scarcity effect.

Outperforming the market at acquisition

Capital gain can be realized at the acquisition.

Thanks to our methodology based on historical analysis of public and private prices and information related to our relationships with industry professionals, our team can assess the maximum price at which it is wise to purchase an artwork. 

This expertise allows us to buy low enough to resell through art galleries that are most familiar with interested collectors.

Facilitating artworks’ turnover

Supporting our partner galleries.

Our team collaborates with leading international galleries right from the acquisition of the artwork for resale through them. Matis operates in an art dealer logic with a turnover of its inventory.

This allows for an improvement in the internal rate of return while promoting short-term deals (target horizon: 2 years).

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.

The story of Matis

Matis was founded by François Carbone and Arnaud Dubois, who regarded the firm as a natural fit for combining their two areas of expertise in order to produce the highest standards in art investing.

Matis is built on
timeless values

Shared Privilege

We believe in a balance between exclusivity and openness. We take a highly selective approach to identify the artworks to invest in and offer access to our club deals starting from a € 20,000 investment. Through the investment in our club deals, we enable the creation of a portfolio of several artworks whose combined value could represent tens of millions of euros: works created by iconic 20th-century artists such as Andy Warhol, Yves Klein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Joan Mitchell, and more.

Transparent Excellence

We believe that efficiency naturally emerges through the alignment of our interests with those of our clients and when delivering a complete transparency on our processes.

We are thus committed to maintaining high standards in your investment experience, which includes the delivery of detailed documentation on each ongoing club deal and a continuous update related to your investment until the artwork is resold.

Unparalleled Experience

Our commitment is to open a window into the world of contemporary art through content and experiences such as private visits and events involving key players in the art market: galleries, auction houses, fairs, museums, foundations, and more.
