Art as an alternative asset class:
Investing in art is a proven way of spreading risk and diversifying your investment portfolio:
Art market is a dynamic market which over the past 30 years has grown exponentially and has benefited from growth and wealth in emerging economies like India, Russia and China;
Unlike the stock market, the art market is flexible and largely unregulated with expertise, personal connections and networks playing a crucial role in securing best works and securing the best prices for them.
Art investment collections follow the same principles of asset diversification to other asset classes. Given the global span and variety of types of works – from painting to sculpture and photography and even video – collectors are not only able to mitigate risks in their general investment portfolios but also to manages risks and leverage high return opportunities in a variety of art classes. For example, contemporary art has undergone a period of enormous growth in the past two decades – high returns are possible with expertise in picking undiscovered and prospective talent or in currently selecting undervalued works.
With pro-active management strategies, the value of assets can be actively increased with securing publicity and museum exposure for artworks in the collection and working with galleries and artists to promote them.
Apart from anything else, art is the ultimate in prestigious PR and client liaison tools. Exhibitions and art events are some of the best opportunities to develop and expand relationships with clients.
And of course – Art is beauty.
