Here are the top three stories in Scottsdale today:
- The City of Scottsdale has trained its staff to identify victims of human trafficking. Scottsdale is the first municipality in Arizona to offer this type of training. The Scottsdale area is reportedly a hub for the illegal sex trade in the state. More than 75 percent of the city’s staff has been trained. (KTAR.com)
- An immersive exhibit featuring King Tut will be coming to Scottsdale. Participants will be able to get a unique historical experience at the Lighthouse ArtSpace beginning on Friday, Sept. 30. This is the latest exhibit by the group that presented the Immersive Van Gogh and Immersive Klimt. (Phoenix New Times)

Are you a Scottsdale resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market?
Bloomberg recently asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.
Thinking you can’t afford a Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of artwork. A company called Masterworks.io built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.
Meaning, you can invest in shares of million-dollar artwork. And in uncertain times, it turns out, fine art may be a wise investment. Here’s why:
- Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
- Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
- Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
To learn more, visit Masterworks.io, where Scottsdale Daily readers can skip the waitlist.
