Overview

"Blue-chip" (defined as the top 100 artists in terms of sales volume) has outperformed the S&P 500 by 250% since 2000. Even more impressive, its "store of value" characteristics only caused it to decline 26% in the 2008-09 financial crisis versus the S&P which declined 58%. We believe the risk-adjusted returns of this asset class and are building a platform to make it available to everyone.

  • Spending 50% of your day prospecting to new investors on the telephone (approx. 30-40 phone calls), and
  • Spending the remaining 50% of your day responding to inbound leads.

Responsibilities

  • Contact 30-40 investors by day either by telephone or in-person meetings.
