This is a lifelong question for many people. This is probably also one of the most asked questions in human history. Way back from the city of Babylon to today in Manhattan – everyone wants to know the right answer to this one question. Where should I invest my money?
The age old Question!
Well, if you Google it, you may get a lot of different answers. And why would you not? Today’s world is filled with financial products, their by-products, products bundled into other products, and so on.
If you ask someone in your family or friends, they’ll start off with a long list like the stock market, real estate, Bitcoin, NFT, REIT, hedge fund, mutual fund, index fund….just to name a few. It is indeed a question that needs an answer. I ask myself almost every other day, where should I invest my money?
The new age answer!
Vincent (withvincent.com) may be an answer to this question! Vincent is a first of its kind search engine designed to help you find new, high-quality investment opportunities. Vincent aggregates thousands of investment offers from various platforms on internet and put them all together with third-part data, and insights. It provides everything in pone place, one experience tailored for your portfolio.
When I last checked, You could search for Real Estate, Crypto, Art, Collectibles and Crowdsourcing such as Venture Funding , Debt and Lending as some of the investment options available.
What’s available for me?
A quick search on Vincent for Real Estate revealed aggregated information from services and platforms such as GroundFloor, EquityMultiple, Christina, Farm together, and my favorite, Fundrise. Of course some of them are available only for Accredited Investors
Under the Venture category, you can see deals and offerings from Republic, (where you can start investing in startups with as little as $100), Netcapital, Ourcrowd, StartEngine, Angellist and others.
For each investment category, you can filter by sector, amount you want to invest, potential return, platform etc. and also set an alert if an offering gets listed that fits your criteria.
The Art & Collectibles sections were interesting for me too as I learned a few new names and services that I was not aware of, such as WeFunder, Otis, Goat, Rally. I was amazed to see some of the investment opportunities like a Michael Jordan PMG card, appraised at $500,000. The minimum investment is $100, which will make you an owner of 10 shares. Frankly, I don’t know if it’s a worthy investment and needs some more research, but it’s interesting to see what’s available out there! Reading up on the vincent blog, I learned about “Sneaker Collecting” and how people are collecting Air Jordans and selling them online. Every day, you learn something new. Gotta love the internet!
How do i invest?
So, if you decide that something you see on vincent is making sense and you want to invest – you can’t do it on Vincent. It’s just a search engine. It is not an investment broker or platform. You’ll be going to the platform that provides the investment offering and invest through them. More like searching on Google, find something that is available on Target, and then go buy it at Target! Simple! You got it.
So, just to summarize, Vincent is a meta-search engine. It searches hundreds of other brokerages, websites, and platforms for qualified investment opportunities in real-time. Vincent earns money when people click on search results and decide to visit one of the investment partners.

An accredited investor is an individual or a business entity that is allowed to trade securities that may not be registered with financial authorities. They are entitled to this privileged access by satisfying at least one requirement regarding their income, net worth, asset size, governance status, or professional experience.
In the U.S., the term accredited investor is used by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under Regulation D to refer to investors who are financially sophisticated and have a reduced need for the protection provided by regulatory disclosure filings. Accredited investors include natural high net worth individuals (HNWI), banks, insurance companies, brokers, and trusts.
