Art is a prestigious asset. Yet it also traps cash, which means that, for too long, selling an artwork has been the only way for art collectors to access its monetary value. Tim Hunter, Vice President at Falcon Fine Art, explores how the global rise of art financing provides an alternative route.

Art has an enduring appeal and for those lucky enough to own it and even form a collection it becomes a passion. Often the aesthetic pleasure can far outweigh the monetary value. Nevertheless great art is expensive and collections can tie up large amounts of money, which can present problems.

For too long, the only option for many art collectors, who wish to access the money tied up in their art collections, has been to sell – an unattractive prospect to those who love, and would rather keep, their art. Now there is an alternative.

Art financing presents an alternative –allowing art collectors to diversify their investment portfolios by raising finance against an artwork; enabling them to invest in other assets; or even collect more art, without the need to reach into their own pockets or dip into other investments.
