Are you wondering if you should buy art as an investment? How can you know which art is likely to appreciate, and which art won’t hold its value over time? Prof. Arturo Cifuentes, a renowned expert on art as an alternative asset category, will help you make the right investment decisions as you build your art collection.
Artworks, notwithstanding their artistic merits, can also be valuable financial assets. This presentation will focus on the art market from a financial viewpoint.
In recent years this market has grown in size, geographical diversity, and importance. However, many fundamental facts about the art market remain not fully understood; and compared to more established markets — such as stocks and bonds, for example — the art market presents a number of peculiarities that still fascinate scholars and investors, not to mention the popular media.
Learn how the basic ideas, models and techniques from corporate finance, portfolio theory, economics, and applied statistics can provide a clear understanding of the functioning of this fascinating segment of the alternative investments space. Prof. Cifuentes’ presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A.
Please note that no refunds will be issued.
