Borro plans to hold a second Valuation Day before the end of the year following a successful first event in London last week.
The company, which typically operates only online, provides finance to consumers and businesses which use luxury assets such as jewellery and watches as security.
The June 18 Valuation Day took place at London’s Chancery Lane, close to the city’s Hatton Garden jewellery quarter, and was described as a great success by the company.
“Valuers met with a large number of new clients throughout the day and offered advice across a range of asset classes. The team saw everything from vintage Patek Philippe and Rolex watches to sporting memorabilia, diamond rings and antique coins,” said Shani Bess, vice president of marketing at Borro.
Clients at the event were not just there to value their goods with a view to borrowing against them, they also took advantage of Borro’s experts to ensure that their valuables are correctly insured; learn about the latest trends regarding their assets; get an impartial opinion regarding the fair market price for a piece when considering sale; and discuss the best way to sell their valuables.
