Strong Results

Very strong results out of Deutscher and Hackett last week.

The results indicate an increased appetite for good examples of Indigenous works.

The art market is now a mature and liquid market, offering yields of 10% to 15% per year for works valued at over $15,000.

Art investing/collecting is a long term mind set, you must remind yourself that if you have works or are looking to start a collection, that you are in for a good 10 -15 year hold, maybe longer.

The figures are certainly compelling.

A recent wealth report records art, as a part of its Luxury Investment Index, growing at 15% in 12 months, 61% in five years and 252% in the last 10 years.

A total of 41% of wealth managers polled said that art investment funds are one of the services most relevant to their clients, up from 29% two years ago.

Collectors, meanwhile, have been increasingly using investment funds.

A total of 28% of those polled said that art investment funds were the most relevant art wealth management services available, up from 23% in 2011.

Keep this in mind…., it’s easy to purchase another share, though an original art work is hard to get, harder to let go of and impossible to replace.
