Marquee Capital is seeking to invest in all types of investment grade alternative assets such as celebrity memorabilia. The company will only invest in memorabilia from celebrities it deems to offer the best long term return on investment (ROI). With this in mind, the company has implemented an aggressive strategy to purchase all high end Madonna memorabilia in the global marketplace. For example in 2006, the company purchased around 75% of the total Madonna memorabilia available (through reputable dealers and auctions), globally.
The management firmly believe that Madonna memorabilia provides good value today for a lucrative return in the future. A good comparison can be found in Marilyn Monroe. Today, Marilyn Monroe memorabilia commands a high premium in the marketplace. In April 2007, Fraser’s in London where selling a range of Marilyn Monroe assets from £3,500 onwards. An outfit worn by her in the movie ‘Some Like it Hot’ was selling for over £20,000.
The market for Madonna memorabilia is only so big. At any one time, there is probably only around £100,000 worth of Madonna memorabilia available. This number is likely to shrink quickly as Marquee Capital makes significant purchases in 2007. Therefore, the management has decided to diversify into other celebrities. The celebrities likely to be considered are Marilyn Monroe, Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, etc.
