Art advisory & financing

For over forty years, our pioneering Art Advisory & Finance services have guided clients through the global art market, helping them build collections and achieve liquidity from artworks. 

Collecting art has been a passion of many wealthy individuals and families for millennia.

Discovering, acquiring, and living with great works of art can bring enormous joy and gratification.

Since 1979, our in-house art specialists have built, maintained, and protected some of the top art collections in the world.

Through our Art Advisory service, we can guide you through the art market, developing an acquisition strategy to build a collection that reflects your vision.

We enable borrowing against internationally marketable paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs of high quality and value, having pioneered this concept ourselves.

By using your art as collateral, you can create liquidity in order to add to your collection or for other investment purposes.

Our art advisors offer independent and objective advice, serving as your advocate to identify, research, evaluate, and negotiate acquisitions and sales of art on your behalf.

Collaborating with our investment finance specialists, we work with you to establish the terms and conditions of the loan.

In most cases, a collection used as collateral may remain in your home or office.

The global art market continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Our art specialists help you understand the latest trends and developments, serving as a key partner in building and maintaining your collection.

We monitor the latest trends from art fairs, exhibitions, and auctions worldwide to deliver the insights you need to navigate the market.

Access
A shared passion for art can create a global network with like-minded collectors and specialists.

It can also give you access to auctions, galleries and private collections.

Our ongoing program of client events includes art collector dinners, gallery visits, specialist talks, and private viewings at the world's leading art fairs.

Legacy
Given both its financial and sentimental value, we believe your art should be reflected within your wealth planning strategy.
