Investment strategy and society

ENGINE CLASSIC CARS – AUTOMOBILE FUND invests the monies entrusted to it in selected iconic and globally-known collector cars, motorcycles or automobilia in particular from the second half of the twentieth century. It therefore offers investors a unique opportunity to participate in a very interesting opportunity to place assets in the medium and long term.

Through this concept the fund provides its investors with the opportunity to diversify assets in an area that, from the long-term perspective, represents a unique opportunity not only to maintain, but also to continually increase the value of assets. In contrast to investments, for example in share indexes, such investments bring a markedly more stable return on money invested, and also a markedly lower correlation with selected share indicators.

In addition to this, it offers its investors the chance to participate in maintaining the history of iconic automobiles, which in many cases are unique for the relevant makes. The fund will not be focused only on automobiles in higher price bands, but its portfolio will include automobiles that, thanks to their history or nature, were greatly sought-after at their time and whose acquisition is not markedly financially demanding, but where the expectation of growth in their value is very high.

The Fund’s basic idea is to offer investors the chance of transparently placing free monies through targeted purchases of pre-selected automobiles, motorcycles or automobilia in the context of current conditions on the market and their timed sale with a return for a shareholder.

In addition to this, the Fund offers a little something extra. You will become part of a unique society, a club for investors and fans of this traditional industry, you will have the chance to participate in joint meetings and events that the Fund arranges for its investors. It is not only an investment, but also the sharing of a common passion and enthusiasm for owning such beautiful and historically interesting motoring icons.
