Demystifying Fractionalisation and Alternative Investments
Join us for our first Investor Series of 2024 where we’ll be delving into the world of fractionalisation and shared ownership.
Fractionalisation refers to the division of a large asset into smaller portions, allowing investors to own a fraction of the asset instead of the entire item. This investment strategy can empower individuals to not only invest in high-value assets but also diversify their investments.
We’ll be speaking to both entrepreneurs and investors to understand more about the opportunities and challenges they face, and to uncover the potential for wealth building in this space.
Join us to explore:
- How fractionalisation breaks down barriers
- Firsthand experiences of building shared ownership models
- Challenges and solutions from industry experts
- How to diversify your portfolio with fractional ownership
- Understand the potential for starting a business in the fractionalisation space

Cynthia has spent her career creating innovative solutions and transforming underperforming organizations. As a serial entrepreneur, she started her own management consultancy, Performance by Design, which she later merged with another boutique consultancy. During her time there she started and scaled the European Division. She also became a founder member of the Haas@Work team, the flagship program of UC Berkeley-Haas Business School’s Innovation Creativity and Design Practice, focused on customer-centred and design-thinking based approaches to applied innovation.
This experience led to her next venture in the circular economy space, when she founded Covett, a luxury brand that revolutionised the fine jewellery industry with our ground-breaking co-ownership and subscription-based models. Most recently she has partnered with another circular economy pioneer to bring forth an even bigger vision and has co-founded More Luxury Club, a luxury marketplace that delivers the value proposition of More to luxury consumers. Enabling them to co-own the luxury goods they covet at a fraction of the cost and with far less impact to our planet. Cynthia holds a dual MBA from Columbia and UC Berkeley – Haas Business Schools with Honours.
Cassie is a serial entrepreneur with 15 years’ experience in growing communities. In 2017 Cassie turned her hand to the fitness industry, and in 2017 built the largest F45 functional fitness studio in London. The success of this business is predicated on the strength of its community.
Cassie has since co-founded a community of classic car enthusiasts around an investment platform called Pistondao. Born from her family association with the pre-eminent Ferrari collector in Australia she and her co-founder are using fractionalisation technology to turn the way that classic cars are traditionally owned and appreciated on its head. Pistondao is democratising access to both an asset class and a tradition that are becoming increasingly out of reach. Members of the community will have access to experience that are otherwise unobtainable, as well as being able to invest in one of the highest performing alternate asset classes, via the cars of their dreams.
