Investing in the World of Art

Why Invest in Art?

Investing in art is a practice that is centuries old, traditionally only accessible for the most wealthy of individuals to satisfy their tastes and bring some beauty to their stately homes.


Over the year’s art investment has grown in popularity with Galleries and Fairs offering a spectrum of art pieces and collectables to the wider market, the options for accumulating art as an investment are growing. Fine Art is an attractive investment proposition though it is important to understand both some key considerations and what investing in art entails.

Firstly investors need to define their niche and determine the forms of art they are interested in. From oil to acrylic paintings, sculptures and photography, each medium appeals to a different audience and from an investment perspective will subsequently be subject to the nuances of that specific segment of the market. Understanding this will influence the type of artwork an investor will own.

Art is a very tangible and visible medium; it provides a sensory experience that few assets can parallel, evoking discussion and a feeling of satisfaction as well as the proven potential for significant growth in underlying value.

“Like the majority of people in the world, luxury asset investment has never been top of my agenda due to knowledge and affordability. I met Chris and Byron of Altvest during virtual business training sessions in lockdown. At a follow up meeting we very quickly recognised our joint interest in the whisky industry. I made enquiries about their cask investment portfolio and decided to buy from them if I could afford to do it. I am pleased to say I have made my first ever investment in a cask of whisky and I can add that the knowledge, integrity and enthusiasm of the guys made this purchase an absolute pleasure. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone."
