Art as an Asset Class

Fine Art and Collectibles can be considered as an asset class on their own because of their intrinsec attractiveness. The high prices achieved in most sectors of the art market make it difficult to ignore the value of art holdings when making decisions in asset allocation or tax planning. Moreover, art works have delivered consistently attractive long-term returns while traditional assets have failed to do so.
