WELCOME TO THE SOURCE:
THE WORLD’S FIRST ONLINE PLATFORM FOR ARTISTIC & ICONIC ASSETS.

 

The Source is a unique project that brings together a global community of likeminded collectors, connoisseurs and those passionate about exceptional, rare and collectable assets. We bring buyers and sellers together within a unique Club of Members who can buy and sell exceptional items, many of them off-market, in our three categories of Fine Art, Iconic Classic Cars and Rare Timepieces.

5 REASONS TO BECOME A MEMBER

OF THE SOURCE

1

Attractive buyer and seller fees

We offer competitive fees for both buyers and sellers, based on a sliding scale that depends on the transaction amount and the category of the property.

For example:

FINE ART:
A painting sold for 1,200,000 CHF: fees of 11.2% (excl. tax) for the buyer, 2.8% for the seller.

CLASSIC CARS:
A Classic Car sold for 520,000 CHF: fees of 9.6% (excl. tax) for the buyer, 2.4% for the seller.

RARE WATCHES:
A Rare Timepiece sold for 110,000 CHF: fees of 16% (excl. tax) for the buyer, 4% for the seller.

2

Full confidentiality for buyers and sellers

The Source puts in direct contact buyers and sellers (or their representatives), following mutual consent. This approach allows for negotiations in absolute confidentiality, whether conducted directly or through your chosen representatives.
Representatives are trusted professionals such as Lawyers, Bankers, Wealth Managers and Family Offices.
The Source’s in-house Heads of Departments are on hand to help facilitate a sale, and will look to field and answer any questions or queries relating to a listing of interest. We operate within the strict guidelines of international law and observe confidentiality and privacy, in relation to all personal data and identity.

3

Transactions without need of intermediaries

Anyone with experience in buying and selling rare, luxury items knows that transactions can stall due to brokers focussing on their own interests and commissions, to the point where the transaction is blocked, fails or is abandoned. Not at The Source! We remove the need for third-party intermediaries, bringing buyer and seller parties together directly as Members of our exclusive online club.

4

Asset due diligence

All exceptional assets are verified in terms of traceability and provenance, and each carries a Certificate of Authenticity. Due diligence on each item is conducted by our in-house Team of Departmental Heads, and where necessary external experts.

5

Identification (KYC) of both buyers and sellers

We understand that authenticity, credibility and compliance with legal regulations across international boundaries is of paramount importance to our Members. To this end, we have been advised and incorporated by a leading team of Swiss Lawyers in Switzerland.

Additionally, our Compliance team checks the identity of buyers and sellers through KYC and due diligence procedures.

Curating excellence isn’t just a passion, it’s our committment at The Source.”
