For investors, wealth managers and family offices, art’s potential for astronomical returns, efficacy as an inflation hedge and position as an invaluable tool for diversification make art a formidable rival to property, cars, watches, and potentially even the stock market.
While often regarded as the folly of the world’s wealthiest, art can substantially reward collectors of any calibre, especially those who work with the right gallery.
We promote galleries that specialise in emerging artists, where investors typically see the most meteoric growth.
Not only is art a fantastic store of wealth, but investing in art offers collectors the opportunity for personal enrichment; owning museum-grade artworks opens up a world of events and networks where investors can meet other like-minded collectors and discover new passions.

Art has historically remained a strong asset during economic turbulence, which positions art as the perfect asset to provide stability to your portfolio.
Art, particularly that of emerging artists, provides the potential for explosive growth. Such exponential returns allow collectors to hedge against inflation.
The art market is uncorrelated to traditional markets, making it the perfect opportunity to diversify your portfolio and protect against volatility.
When validated artists enter auction markets there is a clear upwards trajectory in the value of their work. The galleries we work with specialise in artists who have yet to enter the auction markets, where investors can typically see the most explosive growth in the value of their investments.
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 my art collection decrease in value, and if so, how much?
As with any investment, artworks can rise and fall in value. Despite this, many financial experts have agreed that independent forces outside traditional markets drive art values. 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 comparable to other hard assets such as gold, vintage wine and whisky. It is also important to understand that artworks are not liquid assets, meaning it may take longer than expected to sell your artwork(s). In addition, by working with artists collected by major museums globally, the galleries we promote can mitigate risk by offering investors original museum-quality artwork.
Museums are the ultimate art world validation, and there is an acute shortage of museum-quality artworks. Validated museum-quality art is a tangible asset class of deep intrinsic artistic value and low volatility that operates outside the financial markets (J.P. Morgan).

What do the financial experts say?
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 five 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 proliferate. The most recent Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report estimates that global art market sales reached $64.1 billion last year.
In 2014, $2 trillion worth of artwork was estimated to be held privately (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.
Do I need to be an expert to succeed in the art market?
While the art investment market requires extensive know-how, We will connect you with specialist art consultants with substantial knowledge and experience in the art market, meaning they can advise you and give you an edge that other investors do not possess. The galleries we promote also provide rare opportunities to collect museum-grade artworks from artists validated and verified by award-winning experts.
