Fine art collecting has a long history. Once considered a recreational activity only for the elite and wealthy, collecting art has become a global phenomenon.
Today, collecting art is a recognised investment strategy and fine art is a genuine alternative asset class with a proven track record. It is a tangible safe-haven as part of a well diversified portfolio and has potential for excellent growth.
The recent global financial crisis has demonstrated the need for diversification in a traditional investment portfolio of stocks, bonds and property. A diversified portfolio reduces overall risk and with an allocation of tangible assets like art, is likely to be less volatile. Art tends not to fluctuate as much as the stock market and art investment portfolios can provide strong income streams in addition to potential long term capital growth.
Art, bought wisely, continues to demonstrate its capacity as a strong long term alternative and store of wealth. Art is a finite commodity and if bought well, its value can increase significantly over time. The secret is of course buying wisely. Investment lies in the quality.
Today's investor is presented with numerous options for entering the art market at any level. Art Equity has the structuring expertise to tailor a strategy for clients to suit their investment and aesthetic goals. Whether a novice or seasoned collector, investing in art offers the opportunity to build wealth and be actively involved in Australia's visual culture.
