Gapless Invest is platform that makes alternative investing accessible to anyone by splitting blue-chip collectables into affordable shares. With Gapless Invest, you can invest in the most profitable collectables in the world, even on the smallest budget. How small? Shares start as low as £50. All investments made on Gapless Invest are in real, individual collectables. Every asset is vetted, acquired, insured and maintained by a team of industry specialists. A share of a car on Gapless Invest is more than just an affordable investment, it’s also e.g. a piece of automotive history. Every collectable has its own unique story, and that plays an important role in any investment decision. We create a detailed profile for each car on the platform, complete with photos, videos, records, receipts, and certifications. If you like what you see, all it takes is one tap to invest. Start investing in classic cars in minutes, without breaking the bank.
Before a collectible appears on Gapless Invest, we scout, certify and evaluate it. Only the most valuable collectibles, which we believe are competitively priced and will appreciate over time, make it through our rigorous vetting process. Once a collectible is chosen, Gapless Invest acquires it, splits it into a limited amount of shares, and publishes an offering on the platform. Once this happens, investors of all sizes can purchase shares. Our aim is to be as transparent as possible. Each asset includes a profile with photos, videos, and finely detailed information about the collectable, like its history, condition and documentation. Once enough money is raised from investors, the collectible is acquired and placed in museum-grade storage for optimal value preservation. Members can then continue to buy and sell shares on designated trading days, just as one would sell and trade shares of a company on a stock exchange. Eventually, Gapless Invest’s board of directors will sell the collectable when they deem it has risen sufficiently in value. At this point, all members currently holding shares of the car will receive a payout equivalent to the total value of said shares.
When choosing assets for Gapless Invest, we take a range of factors into account. These include rarity, cultural significance, history, originality, value, condition and additional data-driven considerations. We make no compromises, if an asset does not meet our definition of best-in-class, we don't take it. Therefore, every asset on Gapless Invest has been perfectly maintained and/or restored. The search for new assets is constant. We’re always looking for great assets and maintain a database of potential opportunities so that we can act fast when they become available at the right price. We offer a wide range of assets, there's something for everyone.

Gapless Invest's mission is to make it possible for anyone to invest, no matter the size of their budget. By "splitting" an asset into shares, Gapless Invest essentially gives you the option to buy only a small piece of that asset. This means you don't own the asset the way you would if you bought it entirely, but you still profit when it increases in value. The price per share starts at £50.
If an asset's value rises, so does the value your shares. You receive a profit if the increase in value of the asset exceeds its maintenance costs. You can collect your profit either by selling your shares, or when the board of directors decides to sell an asset that you own shares of.
Anyone who is over 18 and possesses a German or British passport is eligible to invest.
Unfortunately not. In order to ensure return on investment, the assets are professionally stored and maintained, and therefore cannot be used by the investors (or anyone else).
All investments carry some risks, and investments made with Gapless Invest are no different. The value of an asset can fluctuate over time and its exact performance is not 100% predictable. It is therefore possible for any share you own to depreciate in value.
