The ancient art market, as we know, offers excellent investment opportunities for anyone looking for something built to last. To quote Angus Murray, Fund Manager (The Art Newspaper, September 2009), “Art is comparable to gold as an irreplaceable, un-leveraged real asset, and real assets perform well at times when central banks are printing money.” It’s also true that historically, ancient art investments have yielded excellent long-term capital appreciation, usually 8% to 10% annually. Any investment in tangibles, especially works of art, should be projected for at least five to ten years. Collecting fine art is a pleasurable way of hedging against inflation.
