Deloitte Art & Finance Initiative

Deloitte Art & Finance initiative: Luxembourg is the business advisory link to the leading art markets of the world.

The growth of the global art market and the increasing value of art continue to drive the increasing interest in art as an asset, and represents one of the raison d'être of the art and finance industry.

Deloitte Art & Finance is the first professional business advisory to serve this market. They have a cross functional focus and are global in their reach.

Deloitte Art & Finance has now gained eminence as a professional services advisor to the art market. This position has been gained prudently through dedicated research, the development of their widely cited Art & Finance Report, and their six annual Art & Finance conferences.

Through their dedicated research, they have developed a unique set of consulting services for the following client types: financial sector, art-related companies, and cultural sector.

This year's Art & Finance Conference will be held at TEFAF Maastricht, and will include industry talks and key note speeches on integral topics such as Silver Wine Art Gold (SWAG) based portfolio management, and realizing the investment potential of your SWAG assets. Other topics include philanthropy, the valuation of art as a financial measurement, and directives for alternative investment fund managers, such as the new regulatory framework for art investment funds.

Their Art & Finance Report, first launched in 2011, puts Deloitte Luxembourg at the precipice of art and finance development, and allows them to be viewed as a key observer of both the business and financial trends within the art market. The first issue of their Art & Finance Report was exceptionally well received by the international media. It has enabled them to establish partnerships with other offices in the global Deloitte network. They are delighted that Deloitte Netherlands, Deloitte Austria, Deloitte China, Deloitte Italy, Deloitte Poland, Deloitte Spain, and Deloitte Digital UK have joined this initiative.

With their proven expertise and their steadily built up network of art market professionals and experts, they have gained a greater understanding of both the for-profit and not-for-profit actors of the art market. They believe they can apply their classic consulting services to this niche in the high value market.
