The Dalmore Group is the go-to Broker-Dealer for Fractional Share issuers under Regulation A+ financing in the collectibles space. That’s where companies offer investors the opportunity to own a portion of a rare, valuable asset. One such issuer is Dalmore client, Rally, which operates a leading platform for the purchase and sale of equity shares in unique, often one-of-a-kind assets, with historical and cultural significance.
According to Etan Butler, Chairman of Dalmore Group, the relationship with Rally runs deep: “Rally was Dalmore’s first fractional share platform client. They are the leader of Regulation A+ series issuers and many of our other fractional share clients have been inspired by Rally’s success. I am impressed by Rally’s trailblazing creativity and how they have cultivated and built their investor community. We are proud to be their partner in this exciting enterprise.”
According to Fitz Tepper, VP of Operations at Rally, “Dalmore has been a great partner as we’ve continued to grow our business and expand into other asset classes. Dalmore understands the market and understands the unique challenges and opportunities faced by fast-growing startups like Rally. Dalmore approaches each challenge with creativity and sensitivity to the needs of client entrepreneurs. We are excited to help lead the way in our industry’s growth along with the talent and experience of the Dalmore Group and its leadership.”
It is hard to ignore the allure of collectibles like high value art, sports memorabilia, rare watches, and classic cars. But investors need to be careful to find the right balance between their passion for or curiosity about a particularly attractive collectible and a good investment opportunity. And that’s where the need for a credible issuer like Rally and an experienced broker dealer like Dalmore comes into play.
Regulation A+ Series Issuers in the collectibles fractional share ownership space don’t sell shares of their business. Instead, they use the opportunity to allow investors to purchase equity directly in things like rare collectables, sports memorabilia, films – and even dinosaur bones. These issuers, like Rally, use cutting edge apps which maximize user experience to create communities of investors who can build their own portfolios of things they’ve always dreamed about – but could never imagine owning themselves.
“The beauty of the collectibles category is that now people can own the things they could previously only dream of – or at least they can own a piece of the asset,” says Butler. “This means that while someone might not have $100,000 to buy a Michael Jordan rookie card, he can still get an ownership stake with a modest $10 investment. Think about it: You can buy a share in an iconic Jordan rookie card, vintage car or bluechip NFT with just a few taps. And with that purchase, you own a piece of your dream. That’s the world of fractionalized ownership which has been unlocked by Regulation A+ investing. Average investors now have the opportunity to own a piece of a prize that previously was only available to the super rich.”
Rally has seen a post-pandemic uptick in the collectibles market: “Coming out of the pandemic we saw people with a desire to re-engage with hobbies like collecting. Rally is the perfect platform for those activities, as we give our members access to items they may have a deep nostalgia for but otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford.” said Tepper.
Rally has opened access to blue-chip NFTs like Bored Ape Yacht Club and CryptoPunks, with each NFT offering being a Regulation A+ offering just like any other asset class on the platform. According to Tepper, “after just a few months of NFT offerings, we’re proud that in many cases there are more investors on Rally that own a share of these NFTs than there are owners outside of Rally. This is the core mission of our platform – giving access to assets that people otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford.”
Butler and Dalmore are excited about the growth and potential of the collectibles market. And they see collectibles as a part of the investment market: Look to build a portfolio of collectables that you enjoy owning. And if you plan to invest, look at historical valuations and trends, and make sure to diversify.

Rally is a platform for buying & selling fractional equity in unique, often one-of-a-kind assets with historical and cultural significance. Every week Rally runs Initial Offerings, allowing investors to purchase shares of assets similar to the way they would buy a share of a stock, with no minimums and no commission. It also facilitates a secondary market for those assets through registered broker dealers within the app, allowing investors to access liquidity daily during Market Hours (Monday through Friday, excluding standard stock market holidays, from 10:30am(ET) – 4:30pm(ET). Rally started with classic cars in 2017 and since then it has moved into 19 total investment categories including watches, wine, high end sports memorabilia, blue chip NFTs, dinosaur fossils, and more – asset brackets and collectibles with sizable enthusiast communities, but limited access to the best-in-class examples for everyday investors. The ultimate goal is to give everyone access to ownership and liquidity in the things they really care about, instead of just investing in a ticker symbol.
