Global Appraisal and advisory firm, Pall Mall Art Advisors and advisory firm, BAO Art Group, have partnered up in the hopes of combining their expertise and experiences to better help their growing client base and expand their business to other parts of the world.
“The key focus of collaborating with [BAO Founders] Raimundo Figueroa and Brian McConville is for us to collaborate with knowledgeable professionals that align with our approach to art transactions,” Pall Mall Art Advisor CEO, Anita Heriot, said in an email. “Unlike many in the industry we don’t have skin in the game. We are not dealers, we are not auctioneers. We work on behalf of the client and his or her collection and we leverage our art expertise with the goal of always bringing the client the best option for sale and most educated acquisition mythology.”
Pall Mall, established in 2010, specializes in multiple genres of art, antiques and collectibles and provides their clients with advice about buying and selling, valuation services, and collection management. BAO Art Group, founded in 1974, specializes in Modern and Contemporary art and help their clients with a customized selection, acquisitions, delivery and installation of artworks.
Heriot believes the collaboration with BAO will bring increased knowledge, depth and security in building their clients’ collection. Pall Mall currently has offices across the United States and Europe, however, Heriot says, that the BAO collaboration will help Pall Mall reach and focus on Latin America.
“BAO Art Group has been serving collectors and corporate clients for over thirty years,” said Figueroa in the press release, “and with our relationship with Pall Mall, and enhanced global infrastructure access, we’ll continue to lead, and advance our fine art advisory practices.”
