Who We Are &
What We Do
Even individuals with substantial wealth face situations where easily gaining access to millions of dollars of short-term capital in a few days can be a major challenge.
Often times, traditional forms of financing are too slow, burdensome and invasive, or have negative tax or other consequences that make them less than ideal or unviable choices, particularly when time is a factor.
The Market Leader
Luxury Asset Capital™ and its subsidiaries have loaned over $450,000,000 over 20,000 transactions since 2008, making it the leading provider of non-bank loans that use borrowers' luxury assets as collateral.
Smooth and Simple
Doing business with us is straightforward and discreet, requiring little paperwork, typically no credit checks, virtually no personal or business information and no waiting period.
Value Based Lending
Our sole determination for the amount of capital we can provide is the value of the asset(s) we secure as loan collateral.
HOW IT WORKS
Contact us to discuss how much capital you need, your required timeframe for getting it, and the luxury assets you have available to use as collateral.
We will arrange an evaluation of your assets and provide capital based on a loan to value (LTV) ratio of typically 50-70% of its current market value. Upon execution, we take possession of the asset (or in some cases just the title and we store the asset, or become a lienholder) and wire the capital.
We accept a wide range of assets as loan collateral, including:
- Luxury and Classic Cars
- Luxury Watches
- Fine Jewelry and Diamonds
- Gold and Precious Metals
- Designer Handbags and Accessories
- Premier Auction House Collateral
- Luxury Real Estate
- Sports and Entertainment
Any assets we take possession of are stored in secure locations with the utmost care and privacy. We charge fees from 1.5% per month based on the asset type, loan amount and term of the loan requested by our clients. Upon repayment of the principal loan and any outstanding monthly fees, we return the asset or can maintain storage until clients decide to draw capital again.
HOW IT WORKS
Sports & Entertainment
Even individuals with substantial wealth and earnings face situations where easily gaining access to substantial amounts of short-term capital in a few days can be a major challenge, and we specialize in helping athletes and entertainers overcome that challenge.
The Luxury Asset Capital™ Sports & Entertainment Group works exclusively with athletes, entertainers, and their trusted advisors to provide short term capital from approximately $50,000 to $5 million in a few days using personal luxury assets as collateral. In conjunction with the CEO, Sports & Entertainment is run by leading media, entertainment and sports attorney Sandy Fox, who is the Executive Vice President of the Sports & Entertainment Group.
Sandy Fox is among the most knowledgeable people in the sports and entertainment world regarding the unique pressures professional athletes and entertainers face, and the most trusted. He is uniquely positioned to deliver the value of Luxury Asset Capital's short-term liquidity solutions to the community of current and former athletes and entertainers that he knows so well.
The demands on the time, resources, and finances of athletes and entertainers is significant. Opportunities and challenges can arise at any time, and the funds required to successfully handle them may not be immediately available. Typical situations include financing additional luxury purchases, investments, relocation expenses, assisting family members with expenses, or unexpected costs ranging from taxes to medical bills. The Luxury Asset Capital™ Sports & Entertainment Group makes it easy to obtain $50,000 to $5 million or more within days through loans that typically range from 4-6 months but can be longer, until cash flow is restored or longer-term financing is arranged.
