Are Classic Cars Successfully Paving the Road to Alternative Investing?
Tour the cars in the Rally Rd. Showroom!
Interest in private and illiquid assets has reached new highs due to regulatory changes, a desire to diversify from public-market assets, and a slew of new startups that are helping individual investors access non-traditional asset classes.
Rally Rd. is one such start-up that's on the forefront of providing increased access to illiquid assets. The company allows investors to own and trade fractional ownership interests in classic and rare cars via securitization. As Rally Rd. has grown, they have expanded their asset offerings by securitizing other rare and collectible items on their platform.
Join us for the first in a series of events focused on investing in alternative and illiquid assets as Rally Rd. founding team members, discuss:
- How the start up overcame regulatory and other obstacles to realize their goal of illiquid asset securitization
- The challenges unique to creating and maintaining a two-way market for securitized assets
- Possible future opportunities for asset securitization
This is your chance to see a rare car or two in person, network with colleagues, and listen to and partake in the panel discussion. In addition, each member that attends will receive a $50 Rally Rd. gift share. Space is limited, don't wait to sign up, register now!
