We believe that people who own luxury assets should be able to borrow against them or sell them with speed, privacy, and impeccable service.
For too many people, much-needed liquidity – required to seize opportunities or address unplanned events – is trapped in these lovely but illiquid luxury assets.
Banks don't provide these loans or purchases – unless you've got several million pounds on deposit. Nor do auction sites, galleries or antique dealers.
Borro does. We make loans and purchases swiftly and store your luxury assets in locations that are used by museums and auction houses.
We will arrange for the collection of your luxury assets or you can bring them yourself to one of our valuation centres for appraisal by one of our experts. They've all spent many years at places like Sotheby's, Christie's and Bonhams.
