Why Invest in Art?

Investment Portfolio Diversification

Investment Portfolio Diversification

Art is the key to a diversified portfolio, not an alternative form of investment.

Art should be part of a well-rounded investment portfolio, especially when the goal of investing over the long term is not only to boost investments but to also maintain revenues.

Stable Asset Class

Stable Asset Class

There is always a buyer for art.

Deloitte estimates the total value of art to be $1.7 trillion. By 2026, this number is projected to reach $2.7 trillion. Technological advances are making art more transparent and more accessible, resulting in a higher transaction volume.

Continuous Market Growth

Continuous Market Growth

Just like stocks and bonds, art can increase in value.

In recent years, art has grown in value globally at a rate of 6% each year. Globalisation, increased knowledge, and cultural interests all work to ensure a growing marketplace for art.

Proven Historical Returns

Proven Historical Returns

According to Artprice, blue-chip art created by some of the world’s most recognisable artists has outperformed the S&P 500 by 180% from 2000-2018.

With limited edition prints, our expertise has been a part of portfolios containing emerging and established artists, as well as blue-chip artists that have returned as much as 64.6% within 12 months.

Asset-Backed Investment

Asset-Backed Investment

Art is an asset-backed investment and each piece is unique and tangible. Our collection of limited edition fine art prints are physical products you can enjoy, treasure and display, with an opportunity for profit in the future.

Hedge Against Inflation

Hedge Against Inflation

Art has an exceptionally low correlation to more traditional investments such as stocks and shares and serves as a hedge against inflation.

While any investment carries a risk, one of the major benefits of art is that it’s an asset that’s not largely impacted by market volatility, inflation or devaluation in currency. This serves as a risk reduction in your investments.
