ART IS AN ASSET CLASS
Fine Art has become a separate investment class. This asset class is trustworthy, stable, durable and much less subject to violent price swings than the equity markets. Art has proved to be a consistently good investment. According to a survey conducted in 2014 by Deloitte and Art Tactic, an Art -research firm, 76 % of art buyers viewed their acquisitions as investments, compared with 53 % in 2012.
More museums were created between 2000 and 2015 that in the 19th and 20th centuries combined! 720 museums of more than 5.000 m2 will open in 2015 all over the world, considerably boosting the demand in fine Art.
Today, the “collecting” community no longer needs to be convinced that their money is being well spent: that is viewed as a given! So, in the same way you hire an investment advisor to manage your securities portfolio and a corporate consultant to streamline your business, Art Trading & Finance acts as your personal advisor to help you decide what Art and artists to invest in.
