The Experts in Financing the World’s Finest Motor Cars

Launched in 2018, RM Financial Services is a wholly-owned subsidiary of RM Sotheby’s that provides tailor-made loans for high-end collector car and collection owners globally. 

As the largest global auction house in collector cars, we have an in-depth knowledge of the market. By leveraging our expertise, market insight, and valuation expertise, as well as a seasoned leadership team with significant experience in the financial services industry, we are not only able to provide a timely, accurate valuation of your car or collection but also to structure a tailor-made financing solution to meet your financial objectives. 

Primarily focused on providing secured loans above US$250,000 using motor cars as collateral, our services include Consignor Advances, Equity Releases, Acquisition Financing, and Portfolio Loan.

We provide solutions-based tailored financing options to our clients

Consignor Advances – Once you have decided to consign your motor car to be sold at one of our auctions or private sales at RM Sotheby's, it could take weeks or months to receive your proceeds depending on the timing of the sale. Through consignor advances, we can provide you with immediate capital and liquidity at the time of consignment, with the balance to be paid after settlement.

Equity Releases
 – You may have significant capital tied up in a significant collector car, or the market value of your motor car may have grown significantly over time, and you may want to release some of the equity in the motor car based on its current market value to be used elsewhere. We can work with you to value your motor car and create a custom financing solution to meet your financial objectives.

Acquisition Financing/Bridge Loans
 – If you would like to bid for a motor car at one of our auctions or through private sale, having pre-approved financing in place could give you additional peace of mind on your way to potential ownership. We will be able to outline the potential financing options in advance, giving you the added confidence as a bidder or a buyer.

Portfolio Loan – 
If you have a collection of cars that you would like to keep, but you have near-term liquidity needs, we are able to structure a tailored financing solution based on the asset value of your collection.
