Art Investment

More and more buyers and collectors are looking at the art market as an alternative to traditional investment assets. Unlike shares, real estate or precious metals art is traded differently. Each work of art is unique and cannot be replaced or directly compared to another artwork regarding its value. Nevertheless, the popularity of collectibles like wine, coins, classic cars and even sneakers has risen during the last five years.
Art as investment has become more in demand as well.


Investment evaluations and trend forecasts for the art market mostly refer to the auction sales of the high-end market. However, most art collectors not only invest in expensive, high profile works, but also purchase art from the mid- and emerging art market.

How to invest in Art

Investing in art combines the passion-led purchase of a unique piece and the option of high investment returns. During the last five years it has become more and more important for collectors to be investment-informed. First-time buyers are also more concerned about the potential return on investment before buying an original artwork. So, how to invest in art?

Like the other investment sectors, e.g. shares and real estate, the art market has certain influential factors. The first step is to gain on overview and understanding of it. Depending on your investment experience and goals, it doesn’t need to be an exhausting and time-consuming process. Not only wealth managers but also art consultants and galleries aim to provide a potential investor with relevant information on factors influencing the art market. If you are wondering whether it’s reasonable to expect a profit from investing in art, consider that the overall price of art has risen more than 100% in the last decade. Recent years have shown a rise of about 25% in the contemporary art market. You can also check reports and track the development of your preferred art genres.

Whether you want to start your art collection, or just purchase an original artwork for your home, the best way to find the next perfect piece is stay in touch with the art world. Visit art events, browse artwork collections online, follow your favourite galleries and artists on Instagram and connect with art advisers. If you have an intrinsic interest in art, the exciting and profitable world of art may be right for you.
