Konvi is a platform that allows you to fractionally invest in rare, high-end luxury items. Thereby, we offer the possibility to diversify your portfolio by crowd-owning investment grade luxury items as a promising alternative investment. We, together with our very carefully selected partners, identify and source the rarest luxury items below market value in order to allow you to invest and benefit from their potential returns with a minimum investment of 250€. We are letting each item appreciate for a set amount of years, then sell it to collectors. After releasing our secondary market, we'll allow investors to sell their shares prior to the end of the appreciation period while other interested investors who missed an investment funding period will be able to purchase shares later on.
We are offering investments in rare high-end luxury items with chances of high appreciation and returns. Starting off we will offer investments in high-end luxury watches, especially rare timepieces, valued at least €200,000. Through our reputable partner fund, the average appreciation is of ~11% per annum. Over time we will then extend our portfolio to other luxury categories such as art, handbags, cars and other collectibles. Subscribe to waiting lists through our app and get notified!
There are multiple places you can put your money in. As a diversified investor, of course you should put it in multiple places. But let's look at some alternatives:
Konvi has discovered that physical assets historically have low volatility. This is due to brands cutting supply when there's less demand, to align with their marketing strategy of selling scarce, luxury goods. While money is being printed and the value of stocks remains speculative, the value of physical luxury items is driven by demand, which brands fight to keep up.
We work with partner funds to acquire rare collectible assets at a price lower than their market value. We predict the chosen assets will increase in value over time due to the nature of their rarity, brand validation and collectors' express of interest. We work with experts with decades of experience in watch investment. By already managing millions in assets and having never managed a portfolio that depreciated, The Watch Fund has proven to find the watches with the highest value increase in the future. We believe investment driven by experts is more effective than investment driven by passion, emotions and limited brand knowledge.
To express your interest into investment, you will make an initial payment to Konvi, totaling 5% of the investment amount. To complete your investment through Konvi, you will become a shareholder in a SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle), whose purpose is owning, managing and selling an asset. Your investment will reflect the percentage of your shareholding in the company. You can find the documents of each SPV by accessing an open investment inside the Konvi app.
If there are profits while the asset is managed, the shareholders may be eligible to receive parts of the profits as dividends. When available, the entitled amount is 70% the net profits of the company you partly own.
We factor rarity, originality, value, brand significance and additional data-driven factors into every decision we make to acquire assets. We purchase items meeting one or more of the following factors:
99.9% of watches are not investment grade, meaning it's extremely hard to find a watch that you'd be able to sell at a profit after wearing it. Konvi's model works because our partner, The Watch Fund, is able to source the most exclusive and inacessible pieces under retail price, costing €200,000-€500,000, using their connection to the industry. To find out why you should not to consider your watches investments, until you are ready to sell them, check out the following magazine article.
As an investor, you do! Konvi will not own your investment. We legalise asset ownership by creating a company whose whole purpose is owning one item. When you invest in an asset, you become a shareholder in a newly created legal entity that buys, owns and sells one specific asset. This implies the liability of the company you own a stake in is not linked to the liability of Konvi or its partner funds. You can access the legal documents in the legal section of each investment inside the Konvi app.
We (Eran, Ioana & Lena) are three investment enthusiasts, who have always followed the collector watch market. We have experienced lower returns than Konvi’s offering when investing in other alternative investment categories, and we decided to make our preferred alternative investment strategy available to the public. We set out to leverage our experience in startup strategy, software and product development to democratize luxury investing by lowering the minimum investment barriers to an amount as low as 250€.
If you reserve your shares prior to the official opening of a new funding round, you will not have to commit to any payment at that stage. In fact, reserving shares will allow you to receive a "priority access right" to the funding item as soon as the funding opens, which means de facto that we will hold back the amount you reserved for any other investors for 14 days. Thus, you will have 14 days to finalise your reservation with no risk of the item being fully funded and you miss out your opportunity.
The payment is finalised in two steps:
There are two options:

Even though we aim to partner with funds that yield high returns, all investments carry risks and Konvi’s are no different. The value of your investment can fluctuate—in both directions. Past performance does not guarantee future returns. For more information, we recommend you research further our partner, The Watch Fund, and their past performance.
On the primary market, there is no guarantee the item is sold at the predicted price - it can be both higher or lower. On the secondary market, and there’s no guarantee that there will be a buyer offering your desired price when you want to sell. For more detailed information on possible risks please refer to our risk notice.
Any person, 18 years or older, who has an address based in EEA (European Economic Area) can make investments on Konvi’s platform.
Crowdinvesting is the practice of raising capital through the internet from a large number of people. This way of raising capital has been established for the funding of companies worldwide, and also allows anyone to invest in physical assets such as luxury watches or real estate.
The secondary market allows investors to sell their shares before the five year period has ended. Investors’ shares will be sold to other people wishing to invest. The purchase is made when both the buyer and the seller agree on a share price and amount.
Yes, but only when necessary for your reporting purposes. As a shareholder, you will be notified when we will file or receive documents.
To find the best watches to invest that will return the highest appreciation due to their scarcity, we partner with The Watch Fund. The Watch Fund is highly known internationally for their great track record and expertise in finding and investing in the most exclusive and scarce watches. Yet, against common wisdom, it is not the watches that everyone thinks about that bring the highest value appreciation. Instead the scarce, limited edition watches by exclusive brands are the ones which raise exponentially in value because watch collectors would pay a fortune to be able to own such an exclusive timepiece.
The Konvi team knows its strengths and weaknesses. We have all invested in assets with positive returns, but we believe industry experts churn the best results. Therefore, we partnered with The Watch Fund. With decades of experience in watch investments, and a track record of returning 18% average profits per annum, they are trusted by their investors to manage millions in assets.
In terms of ownership legalisation, the company you are a shareholder of is not owned by Konvi. We provide all the tools to define asset ownership at the government level, which cannot be denied. In the worst case scenario, even if both Konvi and the partnering fund become insolvent, the public entity still owns a physical item, which cannot be acquired by either Konvi or the partnering fund.
The partnering fund purchasing an item is responsible for safe storage and maintenance. Their decades of experience in the commodity investment field assures optimal storage conditions. For example, The Watch Fund is currently storing millions worth of watches, waiting to appreciate. They understand that proper storage is critical to growing long-term value. Since we make money only when you do, it’s in our best interest to manage the assets under the highest standards.
