The Citi Private Bank Art Advisory & Finance is a comprehensive fine art consulting service that provides collection administration, estate consultation, philanthropic planning, and art financing. All credit products are subject to credit approval. Alternative assets such as art are speculative, may not be suitable for all clients, and are intended for those who are willing to bear high economic risks. The Citi Private Bank Art Advisory & Finance does not advise clients how to profit from the purchase of art or guarantee that a particular piece can be sold or otherwise used for a financial transaction for any amount including an amount equal to the purchase price.
