WHY Hackstons?

Why Hackstons?

At Hackstons we lead by example. We enforce strict rules on how we trade to protect both our clients and ourselves from potential risks in purchasing physical assets.

At Hackstons we do

Offer complete personalisation

We will work with you to select the luxury assets that work for you. We take the time to understand why you wish to buy prestigious collectors items, whether it's for emotional or financial reasons we are happy to help!

Provide full ownership documentation

You are the owner and can rest easy by having the full legal documentation to prove it.

Encourage you to get involved

We encourage all our clients to go visit the HMRC bonded warehouses where their casks are stored. The great thing about physical assets is that you can enjoy them yourself! We also regularly host whisky tasting events for our clients.

Pride ourselves as experts

Our team are all passionate collectors themselves and each is encouraged to take industry recognised courses to further their knowledge. Whether you want to give us a call to chat about the industry or have some industry updates, Hackstons can help. 

Enforce honesty

Physical asset investing is not high risk, high reward like stocks, equities and cryptos and our staff will always tell you that first off. It is a slower but safer journey which works to complement your portfolio and ensure you always have that safety net to fall back on.

Have over 60 years of experience on our floor

We are based in the iconic Gherkin building in the beating heart of London, our staff are all veteran portfolio managers with decades worth of experience between them.

At Hackstons we will never


All of our assets are selected for their value along with their security. We work only with the most esteemed brands and artists when acquiring the luxuries for your portfolio and do not deal in assets that are highly speculative.

Pressure you

Our job is to inform you into making educated investing decisions, Hackstons works in partnership with you. We don’t profit unless you do, we have no interest in hiring fast talking salespeople.

Hold complete ownership over the assets you buy

We are tangible asset brokers, helping to facilitate your needs and if we went under you would still hold full ownership of your luxury investments.  

Work with you if you are at financial risk

Tangible asset investment is not some hail mary, it is a careful, patient process. Our compliance team is rigorous in protecting both yourself and Hackstons from fraud and fiscal jeopardy.

Operate outside of FCA regulation

In many of the asset classes we work in, there is no legal requirement to follow FCA rulings, unfortunately, which often leads to bad actors. At Hackstons we always believe in being better and leading the industry from the front and so we comply even if it is not necessary.
