A Foreword From
"Ever since I can remember I have been passionate about cars. From watching Rally Cross at 4 years old to building mini's with my dad through my teenage years, I have always been around cars.
Although cars and Motorsport have been a passion of mine, my career has been firmly based in financial services and consultancy, most recently as the managing director of a UK Fintech business lending company, Liberis.
As my family grew and priorities changed the dream of owning my own classic car collection started to look a long way off. Combined with seeing the cars I loved as kid appreciate out of reach I thought owning one would remain just a dream.
I've always had lots of friends that are also into cars and every time we get together the conversation quickly turns to picking out the next big thing in the world of classic cars.
We discussed trying to find a way to join together to buy a car. Getting a group together to buy an investment car, store it, insure it together and share the costs and well as the future benefits. The concept of TheCarCrowd was born.
I thought that even if I own a small percent, with the rapid appreciation of some of the cars out there the potential returns could be very attractive.
I formed TheCarCrowd in 2019 with a vision to democratize the strongest performing investment classes and allow passionate people a way of joining together to own and benefit from the assets they love."
