Sarment offers luxury lifestyle management services to ultra-rich clients. They can use the platform to purchase luxury goods and services from third parties.
Sarment makes money off of client subscriptions and by taking a cut from transactions on its services. The artificial intelligence that powers Sarment’s technology is developed in Israel.
The company is controlled by Paolo Bulgari, who heads the luxury brand that borrows his last name, and Bertrand Faure Beaulieu, who founded Sarment in 2012.
