How we work with you

Passion for Art

Juan Carretero, a Venezuelan entrepreneur and passionate art collector, wants to expand his art collection, which he regards as an investment. It is displayed in his Miami Beach home.

To enable him to identify opportunities to grow his collection, Mr Carretero’s banker introduces him to one of our dedicated, in-house art experts.

Accepting his existing collection as collateral, we arrange financing for him to buy a masterpiece that he loves.

Mr Carretero is keen to keep his collection intact after his lifetime for his family’s enjoyment, so our wealth planners work with the client and his advisor to create a structure to hold the art and provide potential US transfer tax efficiencies.

We invite him to attend the exclusive art events that we regularly hold, where he is able to meet peers who share his passion.
