Art Advisory Service

We offer independent, expert advice on fine art as an investment.

Art as an investment provides a natural hedge against inflation as a growth asset in its own right. Our art advisory service is the first of its kind in South Africa. It was established by leveraging directly from our association with Sanlam, which has one of the most valuable corporate art collections in the country. Through this service we provide you with independent, expert advice on buying art and managing your art investments.

We generally encourage getting expert advice before making any investment decision, and this also applies to art investing. The art market is unregulated and there are no best practices or statutory requirements, which means there are a number of risks to take into account. Getting expert advice on your art investments can help you avoid these risks. Accomplished art professional and curator of the Sanlam Art Collection Stefan Hundt heads up the art advisory service.
