We’re building the stock market of everything.

Assets like cars, art, whisky and wine have outperformed the markets in recent years. So we're launching a new platform that enables Chip users to invest in luxury items. Curated by experts, stored securely.

Own shares of luxury assets

Instead of owning one £100K Rolex you’ll own 1% of the watch. This is called fractionalising.

Curated by the experts

The assets are chosen by third party experts who know how to pick and store the best products.

See your portfolio in Chip

Start your collection of Alternative Assets and eventually trade them all inside of Chip.

With investing your capital is at risk.

Experts call them Alternative Assets

Invest in real assets.

Own a piece of something amazing. Back your money with real-world assets. Diversify your portfolio and seek returns. Please note that you cannot hold an Alternative Asset investment as part of a GIA or ISA.

Invest in cars.

Own shares in a vintage Jaguar, a classic Ferrari or a rare Lamborghini. Beyond the sex appeal, investing in cars can be a serious diversification strategy with the possibility of remarkable returns.

Invest in wine.

Fine wine traditionally attracts investors looking to insulate their money from stock market shocks. We're working with industry experts to bring you curated portfolios of securely warehoused wine.

Invest in whisky

You can't really sell a decent single malt until it's at least 12 years old. And typically the longer whisky matures, the more valuable it gets. So as it matures, so could your investments.

Coming soon

Invest in art.

Art is inherently irreplaceable and rare, attracting big name investors who can afford to buy individual artworks. But now, Chip's opening the opportunities of the art market to everyone.

Coming soon

Sensible returns behind the sex appeal.

Fundamentally we know this looks much cooler than investing in index tracking stock market funds like the FTSE 100. But this isn't a fad, in fact Alternative Assets can be part of a serious investing strategy, as they offer a demonstrable history of consistent returns.

With this in mind, many fund managers add in alternative assets to their portfolios.

Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns.

Own shares in luxury items.

Assets like cars, art, whisky and wine have outperformed the markets in recent years. So we're launching a new platform that enables Chip users to invest in luxury items.

Invest in classic cars.

The HAGI Top index, which measures the value of classic cars, increased 264.49% between December 2008 and December 2021.

Investing in classic cars enables you to build a truly diverse portfolio, and brings you exciting investment opportunities with the possibility of remarkable returns.

Invest in wine

In times of market turmoil, investments in fine wine have proven fairly resilient against volatility. In 2021, wine outperformed gold as an investment commodity, with a gain of 19.1%.

Invest in whisky

A decent single malt isn’t saleable until it’s at least 12 years old. And usually, the longer whiskey matures, the more valuable it gets. As it matures, so could your investment.

Coming soon

Invest in art

Fine art was once the preserve of high-net-worth individuals. However, the tables have turned. Sales in the art market swelled by 29% between 2020 and 2021, and the UK market alone has grown 14%.

Coming soon

Alternative Assets industry may reach $17 trillion by 2025.

A combination of high inflation, low cash saving rates and saturated stock market, means Alternative Assets are surging in popularity. Once the playground of the mega-rich, Chip now is using cutting edge tech to open up the opportunities of Alternative Assets to everyone.

Our vision is to create a seamless user experience letting you buy (and sell) shares in these luxury items.

Save like a billionaire.

Over the last few years, Alternative Assets (e.g. wine, whisky, or art) have beaten many financial indices, as well as moving independently from stocks & shares markets. These are commonly used by the wealthy to diversify their portfolios and protect them from stock market shocks.
