Art advisory & finance

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 advisory 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 the concept of art lending 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 art 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 advisory services help you understand the latest trends and developments, serving as a key partner in building and maintaining your collection.
