Unlike many other lenders in this field, FFA is not a broker or agent, and instead finances clients directly using its own balance sheet.
With FFA clients are, in most cases, able to retain possession of their artworks during the financing term, which is ideal for collectors wanting to utilise the value of their art collections while continuing to enjoy it.
FFA only requires art as collateral for its financing solutions. It does not require other assets, or attempt to influence a client’s wider portfolio.
FFA understands that clients may wish to raise capital for a variety of reasons. Whether simply to create more liquidity for investment purposes, to free up equity prior to the sale of an artwork, or to raise finances in order to purchase another work of art, FFA is able to structure each deal to accommodate a client’s specific needs.
FFA also works closely with private banks, wealth managers, art dealers and advisors, providing a discrete and complementary service for their existing clients.
