Art as investment is no longer confined to the exceedingly wealthy as more people are cultivating an interest in and have access to buying quality pieces of art.

There are numbers of ways that art as an investment can work in your favor. One of them is the more traditional approach that most would recognize which is holding on to your piece and allowing appreciation of your investment over time. Another stream of investment that is growing is to lease your fine art to others – individuals or companies – and they pay you to ‘rent’ your pieces. This means that while your piece of art investment is going up in value as it ages, it is also generating an income on your behalf. If either of these approaches interests you, get in touch and we can help you find the best protection for your investments.
