It isn’t necessary to be wealthy to purchase art, and it’s considered a safe haven for anyone looking for a valid refuge from inflation.

Secondary Market

When validated artists enter auction markets there is a clear upwards trajectory in the price collectors pay for their work. The galleries we promote specialise in artists who are yet to enter the auction markets, where the most explosive growth is typically seen.

Peter Doig first entered auction in 1997 and sold for £2,400. 9 years later his work sold for £1,000,000.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks? Can the value of my art collection reduce and if so, by how much?

All artworks can rise and fall in value. Despite this, many financial experts have agreed that art values are driven by independent forces outside traditional markets. In fact, art has proven to perform particularly well during times of financial uncertainty and volatility. Many consider art a more stable store of wealth as it is comparable to other hard assets such as gold, vintage wine and whisky. It is also important to understand that artworks are not a liquid asset, meaning, it may take longer than expected to sell your artwork(s).

So, why art?
There have been numerous comprehensive studies on alternative asset classes such as the Knight Frank Wealth Report, and art has proven to be the number one for performance and market volume in the world. Art is not only a tangible investment and an inflation hedge, but by being non-correlating, it can diversify exposure. Furthermore, this non-correlation contributes to the potential for superior returns over a period of time.
Why invest with our clients?

All of the galleries we are partnered with hold impeccable catalogues of museum-standard artworks which ensures that any addition to your portfolio will consist of investment-grade pieces that have a better standing in the art market.

To be clear, you will be buying at the right price, quality and kudos to deliver the safest and most desirable returns possible.

In summary, our clients mitigate risk by sourcing the correct artists that have achieved a great deal of success to prove that they are worthy of collecting, but, excitingly, they definitely still have the best yet to come!

What do the financial experts say?
The Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index 2023 found that Art had seen 109% growth in the 10-year period leading up to Q2 of 2023.
 
“Research has shown that fine art can function as a risk-reducing element in a portfolio because of its low correlation to equities or bonds, while also being a real asset, which provides a hedge against inflation” – Jean-Christophe Gerard, Head of Barclays Private Bank EMEA 
 

“The most recent survey shows an increase from 78 percent in 2016 to 88 percent in 2017 of wealth managers saying that they think art and collectibles should be included as part of the array of wealth management solutions.” – Deloitte Art and Finance Report, 2017

 
 
So, what drives the market and will it continue?

There is an obvious correlation between the wealth in the world and the amount of demand for art. Today’s high net worth individual (HNWI) combined wealth is over $61.3 trillion (Wealth-X). “The global ultra high net worth individuals’ (UHNWI) population is forecast to rise by 22% over the next 5 years” – The Wealth Report 2019, Knight Frank 

So, as the evidence suggests, as long as global wealth creation continues, the demand for art will continue and the art market will continue to be strong. The most recent Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report estimates that global art market sales reached a total of $64.1 billion last year. In 2014, it was estimated that there were $2 trillion of artworks held in private hands (Anna Dempster, Economist and Senior Lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art). The Economist estimates that $3.6 trillion will be spent on art by 2025.

As always, past performance and projections are not an accurate reflection of future performance.

Do I need to be an expert to succeed in the art market?

Absolutely not.

While the art investment market does require extensive know-how, De Pointe will connect you with specialist art consultants who already have substantial knowledge and experience in the art market meaning they can advise you to give you an edge that other investors do not possess. The consultants that we work with also provide rare opportunities to collect museum-grade artworks from artists who have been validated and verified by award-winning experts.

Substance + Proven Track Record = Serious Potential

Museums are the ultimate art world validation and there is an acute shortage of museum-quality artworks available. Validated museum-quality art is a tangible asset class of deep intrinsic artistic value, low volatility and operates outside of the financial markets (J.P. Morgan) that can also be left to loved ones.
