As an asset art has a proven longevity – weathering financial crises and recessions and frequently outperforming other alternative asset classes. Yet it is often difficult to realise the value of a collection without selling the artworks, which can be both costly and time-consuming.
Art financing is a sophisticated wealth-management strategy that enables a collector to both maximise the value of an art collection while continuing to enjoy it. It is an excellent way of freeing-up capital for investment elsewhere.
Art financing can also eliminate the tax and transaction costs that would typically be associated with the sale of artworks.
