Across numerous industries, today’s digital transformation has shattered conventional gold standards and spawned a tidal wave of new opportunity, risk, and confusion.
This tsunami of turmoil has ripped across most industries, leaving many new and largely unproven alternatives in its wake.
For instance, many investors have seen the legacy hedge fund investment model get suddenly replaced by unproven machine learning models based on algorithims; many consumer-driven businesses have been confronted by hit or miss digital marketing opportunities that unfortunately do not produce a reliable ROI. Meanwhile, local brick and mortar retailers have routinely seen their personal connections with local customer audiences fade.
Each and every one of these industries is left to wrestle with the same dilemma: Is there any concrete, certain way to achieve successful outcomes in this new, wild west-like digital marketplace?
Only recently have pioneers in the financial, marketing, and retail fields innovated concrete, reliable methods to ensure the same degree of success in the digital world.
And intriguingly, some of the solutions that are delivering the best rest results are far from what you might expect.
Investment tycoon Jeremy Larner, for instance, has come up with a remarkable strategy to bring the buying and selling of art into the sharing economy.
With an eye towards expanding the accessibility of contemporary art—and the financial gain that can be realized from its acquisition and sale—Larner has opened up the process of arbitrage to a consortium of lay investors who connect digitally to his company JKL Worldwide.
Leaning on Larner's seasoned expertise as well as the unregulated arbitrage that typically collateralizes Larner’s purchases, clients of JKL Worldwide can participate in art trades that typically yield 400 percent the return of successful hedge fund investments.
For instance, within just the past five years, Larner and his investors have bought 159 pieces of art—from George Condo, to Keith Haring, to Alexander Calder, and Andy Warhol—averaging no less than an 81 percent return on investment across the entire inventory.
Larner is enabling the outside world to capitalize on his unique insider access and information and, for the first time, is making art’s elusive marketplace accessible to the public.
