What Do A Birkin Bag and Bottle of Burgundy Have in Common? Spoiler: Market Beating Returns.

Vint

By David Butler In the world of fashion, one bag reigns supreme and leaves celebrities and the ultra rich fighting amongst each other for positioning and the opportunity to own one. The bag is known simply as a “Birkin'', and since its inception in 1984 this bag has experienced a meteoric rise to its current place in the fashion world. Originally sketched on a napkin during a flight from London to Paris, Jane Birkin probably never anticipated that her bags would one day start at prices of $10K USD, and be selling at auction for upwards of $380K. Accounting for inflation, one study that looked at the bags as an investment showed that they appreciated at a rate of 14.2% annually over a 35 year period, besting the S&P 500 which came in at 8.7%. These bags are so coveted, that they’ve become more than just fashion. They’ve become an investment. The same can be said of Burgundy wines. Located in the Eastern part of France, Burgundies have long been known for their complexity, elegance, and depth of flavor. Now, they’re also known for their remarkable prices. The Burgundy 150 Index (used by the London International Vintners Exchange, or Liv-ex, as a way to track performance) has gained a remarkable 105.6% over the last five years (ended January 23rd) compared to 44.4% for the S&P 500 over the same time frame. Like the Birkin is to fashion, the world of wine has a few producers that are so sought after that most of us will never get the chance to taste, let alone see a bottle. The pinnacle of Burgundy is largely considered DRC Romanée-Conti Grand Cru. A prime example of this blue-chip wine's dominance is the 2014 vintage. A single bottle can cost you more than $23,000, while the Liv-ex market value of a case has increased by nearly 63% over a five year period. Other examples include Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru, which has gained 223.16% over a five year period, or the 2018 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru which is up 26.2% over the last 12 months. If a Birkin bag is the pinnacle of handbag investing, many of the top pinot noir from Burgundy are its counterpart. Despite the investment potential, fine wine is an asset class that can seem daunting to investors. Industry know-how is a big factor in making the right wine picks, maximizing gains, and realizing liquidity. Whether it be Hermès bags, a piece of art or wine, investing in the asset class through a professional can be more conducive to long-term results, rather than simply storing a few wines in your basement. Companies like Vint offer a solution. Their platform allows investors to invest in shares of wine through securitized offerings, rather than having to go out and purchase an entire wine collection on your own. Their team researches the market, sources the wines, stores them safely, and finds buyers when the time comes. These are steps that can be very costly. For those without industry experience, it can be difficult to understand the analysis and market dynamics that determine when to buy and sell. That’s why Vint’s in-house team of professionals use proprietary analysis and fundamental research to seek value and returns for their investors. Just don’t ask them about handbags. This article originally appeared on Benzinga here. Founded in 2019, Vint set out to financialize fine wine and spirits and create a new asset class. Vint received SEC qualification in 2021, thereby creating the first fully-transparent, efficient platform for wine, spirits, and futures collection investing. Vint offers expert-curated, thematic collections of fine wine & spirits to institutional, accredited, and non-accredited investors. Since launching, Vint has securitized and offered over $6M worth of assets. Through Q3 2022, Vint has generated returns of 28.3% for asset exits on a net annualized basis since inception. Vint is backed by leading investors Montage Ventures, MS&AD Ventures, Goat Rodeo Capital, Fintech Ventures & Slow Ventures. To learn more about Vint, visit Vint.co.

Multipolar Development Corporation Electric Machine Prototype Promises Unprecedented Versatility

Multipolar Development Corporation

Multipolar Development Corporation (MDC) an electrical and automation engineering company announced details on its patented multipolar electric vehicle (EV) propulsion enhancement system today. The company has begun construction and testing of a physical prototype of its novel multipolar electric vehicle propulsion enhancement system. MDC’s Recent successes with finite element method (FEM) models of the system have paved the way for the development of the first iteration of the revolutionary electric machine design. “The technology is performing even better than we anticipated,” stated MDC CEO and inventor, Shaun McCutcheon. “We fully intend to shock the EV industry as our patented technology advances it to a new level of efficiency and performance.” Multipolar Technology™ manages the speed and torque of a DC electric machine directly through advanced intelligent control, requiring fewer external drive components and power connections and eliminating the need for brushes and commutators. Breaking the “medium voltage” barrier The innovative Multipolar approach is a response to the rapidly growing demand for high-power electric machines. In addition to the push to replace internal combustion motors with greener alternatives, there’s an increasing need for more efficient DC electric generators, particularly at an industrial scale. With heavy industrial applications and electric vehicles (EV's) being the next phase for green initiatives, Multipolar marks a significant milestone in machine technology. The increased efficiency and scalability of MDC’s patented design will allow its DC machines to operate at voltages of 2000 V and above (medium voltage above 1 kV) – something that has been traditionally impractical for DC electric machines. Long-term use, electrical arcing, and environmental conditions lead to mechanical wear and imperfections that reduce efficiency in high-power motor and generator applications. By using its unique control system to dynamically alter a machine’s pole configuration, Multipolar can compensate for these conditions in real time to offset inefficiencies and accumulated mechanical defects. Ultimate versatility and customization The biggest advantage of Multipolar machines is versatility. Traditional DC electric machines have a fixed design and operation. With a Multipolar DC machine, however, the performance can be optimized for the demands of each end device or system using software and machine learning. Engineer and electric motor consultant Thomas Neroda stated, “The major advantage of the Multipolar machine is the performance versatility. With almost unlimited performance configurations, the machine can be uniquely adapted to match the requirements of the end application.” The Multipolar machine will allow end-product designers to use a custom controller with multiple performance options and settings. An array of sensors will inform intelligent software, both at setup and during operation, not only to optimize performance to meet initial design specifications but also to maintain that efficiency and performance under dynamic conditions. With a range of operational speeds at full power, designers will even be able to repurpose Multipolar machines when applications or operational demands change. The upcoming Multipolar electric machine prototype, expected to be completed in mid-2023, will demonstrate the practicality of an intelligent multipolar DC electric machine design setting the stage for further research and production including new Multipolar Universal AC/DC Machines. “At a time where political leaders in the United States are seeking to position the country as a global leader in EV manufacturing, the introduction of our technology has perfect timing,” Shaun McCutcheon continued. “With more than $3 billion expected to be invested into the domestic electric vehicle industry by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and likely even more from private investors, we expect significant interest in the technology our team of engineers developed.” Multipolar Development Corporation is an Austin, TX-based C-Corp comprised of energy, electric, and automotive engineering experts. ### Please visit: www.MultipolarMachine.com for more information.

CleverTap

CleverTap, the modern integrated retention cloud, released its Industry Benchmark Report for Fintech Apps 2022. As fintech apps continue to grow more popular, the number of players vying for market share has increased. This has subsequently reduced customer retention and “stickiness” for any one brand. Therefore, today more than ever, it is crucial that fintech companies find ways to drive customer “stickiness” by engaging users in effective ways that eventually drive transactions and fuel growth. The report reflects data collected from Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, Middle-East, and North America. The report gives marketers a truly holistic view of key metrics within the fintech app landscape.It also spans a wide variety of fintech apps, including, but not limited to, mobile payment apps, cryptocurrency, and block chain services, along with banking and insurance among others. These insights will not only serve as a helpful starting point for developing successful engagement strategies, but also assist in understanding how an app fares in comparison to global averages. Some of the key metrics in the report include: Install to sign-up rate: Only 1 in 5 users that install fintech apps (21%) end up signing up within the first week. Average time to sign-up: 70% of the users that sign-up, do so within 75 seconds of launching the app for the first time. Sign-up to conversion rate: 95% of newly signed-up users make at least one financial transaction in the first month. Average time to convert: 76% of newly signed-up users move from onboarding to deeper-in-the-funnel engagement within an average of 7 days. Session frequency: On average, fintech app users launch their app around 11 times a month. Average repeat transaction rate for new users: 15% of newly signed-up users complete more than one transaction in the first week. Average click-through rate for push notifications: On average, 9% of Android users and 6% of iOS users will click on and interact with push notifications. Average click-through rate for in-app notifications: The click-through rate for in-app notifications is 24%, that’s about 3 times more than that of push notifications. Average email open rate: 34% users open emails sent by fintech companies Average Stickiness Quotient: Fintech apps enjoy a stickiness quotient of 22%, that indicates nearly one-quarter of MAUs consistently return to their fintech apps “The fintech industry has seen exponential growth in the last few years. Given the relentless competition within the space, fintech platforms need to step up their Omnichannel engagement efforts to better retain customers,” said Jacob Joseph, VP-Data Science, CleverTap. “The benchmark metrics laid out in our report provide a great starting point for growth marketers looking to develop effective marketing strategies. They will be able to compare numbers against global averages and pinpoint which aspects they are excelling at and which areas could use some attention or innovation.” 95% of new fintech users complete a monetary transaction in the first month. This shows that while users see value in fintech apps, it’s important to adopt customized user engagement strategies to boost retention on the platform. Today there is a real need for fintech brands to bake-in effective marketing strategies within their apps. Users will remain responsive as long as the experience is engaging and seamless. The benchmark report helps fintech apps understand how to build successful mobile communication campaigns, and also allows growth marketers to discover areas that require greater focus.
