As the global ultra-rich snap up trophy artworks and build collections scattered around many homes and storage facilities, art services are becoming an increasingly important part of wealth professionals’ offering to help these collectors manage their financial lives.
A Thursday panel at Deloitte’s U.S. Art & Finance Conference at The Armory Show featured five art and finance professionals discussing the evolving relationship between art and financial services.
It launched with Philip Hoffman, founder, and CEO of The Fine Art Group, harking back 18 years to when he was planning the launch of his art investment fund, The Fine Art Fund. Hoffman recalled how at the time, “everyone said it was very crude” to approach art as an asset class, since “art was about passion.” Fast-forward 18 years and now everyone’s doing it, he said, ticking off the names of banks with art services departments.

Born in Cali, Colombia. South America in 1944.Barranquilla was where he first got introduced to the world of arts; assisting different schools including Bellas Artes with some of the most renowned Colombian artists during the La Cueva years.
Rafael Salazar ~
Artist and Sculptor
from Colombia, South America
He owned an Art Gallery in Sunny Isles Boulevard, where he taught young artists recently graduated from Gainesville University:
“The Art of finding the Inner Artist within you”.
An introspection of the artist’s own mental and emotional processes when defining which type of Art most sincerely reflects his or her artistic personality.
~ Rafael defies the assumption of his medium employing techniques to push his images toward abstraction.~
Nowadays, he is dedicated to painting producing a vast array of creations where his imagination has no boundaries.

Is the art market bubble about to burst?

A recent study published in the Journal of Empirical Finance from the University of Luxembourg predicts that the seemingly ever-growing art market bubble is about to burst.
Roman Kräussl, Thorsten Lehnert, and Nicolas Martelin from the Luxembourg School of Finance applied a new statistical method of detecting bubbles to over one million auction records from 1970 to 2014, focusing their research on the Impressionist and modern, post-war and contemporary, American, and Old Masters sectors of the market.

Thanks to multi-billion-dollar November art auctions in New York and the ever-growing behemoth that is Art Basel in Miami Beach each December (with an estimated $3 billion worth of art on view), the tail end of the calendar year has become one of the busiest for the global art trade.
This frenzy of buying and selling between dealers, auction houses, and collectors, translates into an equally dizzying routine with regard to art shipping—be it from auction houses to private homes, to freeports in Switzerland and Singapore, from residential collections loaning works to prestigious museum shows, and from art fair booths to the homes of eager buyers abroad.
So what could go wrong? Plenty.
