Why invest in Art?
The international art market is a marketplace of traders in various arts. It is a predominantly offline industry, yet online sales have been increasing in recent years.
According to a 2019 Statista survey, 65 percent of art collectors and 81 percent of art professionals bought art not with a collecting purpose but rather from an investment perspective.
Enjoy up to 100% Tax deduction on Art
Now is the best time to invest in art so you can take full advantage of a 100% tax deduction on the purchase of artworks for your business.
For small businesses with a turnover of less than 10 million, art purchases for your business can entitle you to a 100% tax deduction allowance to spend up to $30,000 (per item). The $30,000 limit is the maximum tax deduction for any single purchase but you can make as many purchases up to that amount as you like.
ART IS AN EFFECTIVE EDGE AGAINST INFLATION
In periods of rising inflation, art continues to do well throughout different market sectors. In fact, according to the Deloitte Luxembourg & ArtTactic Art & Finance Report, 73% of wealth managers have said their clients wanted to include art and other collectible assets in their wealth reports, in order to have a consolidated view of their wealth.
True enough, the returns you get from an art investment is significantly better especially with rising prices in the economy.
The compound annual growth rate of Sotheby's Mei Moses Index between 1950 and 2018 was 8.8%.
Since the 50’s, the art market has grown gradually and pertinently, with extremely low dependence on other asset classes. It has even grown during the worst economic downturns of our times – reducing most other investment classes to smithereens.
Art is an emotional investment
For many years, art has been used to promote therapy. It sets the tone for living spaces and creates an ambiance of serenity and relaxation wherever it is displayed. Investing in a piece of art may not yield an income as it’s a capital growth orientated investment but your dividend is the complete satisfaction of owning your own piece of art and living with it hanging in your home.
Who doesn’t love putting prized possessions in the spotlight, as a focal point in a room and a novel conversation starter? Fine art purchases are also some of the most likely pieces to be collected for social purposes in your personal space.
Art diversifies your assets
The global art market is, by and large, completely uncorrelated to the world’s major stock markets. This means investors can use art investment as an excellent portfolio diversification tool in times of economic uncertainty.
As per Deloitte’s Art Finance & Finance Report, some banks today are already offering art investment fund products to their clients. 43% of art professionals also stated that art investment funds were relevant service for their clients.
You might not be rubbing shoulders with the world’s greatest artists right now, but if you aspire to collect, then art can be a gateway, not only to becoming a custodian of culture in this country but to being a law-abiding taxpayer who is trading incredible art for tax breaks!
Art sets the tone & enhances your business
Displaying art within your business is a fantastic and instantaneous way to improve your space. Artwork inspires employees and greatly enhances the work environment. It influences your corporate image and speaks volumes about your business.
Art is an integral part of business presentation and operation for many of our clients.
We have delivered art to countless offices and workplaces over the years and have seen, first hand, the dramatic change that well-selected artworks can have on the work environment and the people that spend so much time there.
ART INVESTMENTS ARE TANGIBLE ASSETS
Art is becoming increasingly popular as an investment asset and so much so that people are now investing in art more than wine, according to the wealth report by real estate firm Douglas Elliman.
The average value of art sold at auction rose by a significant 21% within a twelve-month period. Compare this to other luxury assets such as investment-grade wine which took second place with 11%, followed by watches at 5%, coins and jewellery at 4%, cars at 2 % and stamps at 1%.
Placing your wealth in the art market for the long term for high-value artworks can be comparable to investing in real estate or luxury items, where value increases over time. This means that when you find the right piece of artwork, you become the owner of a tangible asset which, unlike some other investments such as stocks and shares, will always have a residual value.
