About Lux Exchange

Who We Are

Lux Exchange provides capital to individuals and businesses in exchange for luxury assets that we either purchase or hold as loan collateral. We are a leader in the fast-growing online alternative lending market, with over 6 years of experience helping to meet our clients’ cash-flow needs driven by life’s moments of transition and unexpected events, making aspirational purchases, or running a small business. Lux Exchange provides cash in amounts ranging from $2,500 to $5,000,000 or more, in exchange for fine watches, jewelry and various other luxury items that are high in value but low in liquidity.

Our online process is straightforward and discreet, allowing clients to obtain financing quickly, conveniently, and privately. Unlike traditional financing vehicles such as business or home equity lines of credit, our process requires little paperwork, no credit checks, no application or administration fees, and no waiting period. Most importantly, it provides clients with the alternative to retain control of a luxury asset by simply using it to collateralize a loan or liquidate it completely by selling it outright to the Lux Exchange.

In either case, the process is fair, transparent and secure, with the Lux Exchange’s evaluation, financing and client services team there to ensure that the experience our clients have makes Lux Exchange an enduring and ideal financial partner.

What We Do

The Lux Exchange provides capital to individuals and businesses in exchange for luxury assets that we either purchase or hold as loan collateral. Transactions can be executed in as little as one business day and generally support individuals or businesses in a range of situations requiring immediate financings, such as moments of transition, small business needs, aspirational purchases and large, unexpected expenses.
