Making Art Assets Work Harder

A single digital platform to help financial institutions to accelerate their insight and portfolio management capabilities.

sculpture of head

As with any other asset class, art requires highly-skilled and dynamic stewardship – and demand from high profile collectors for both guidance and innovation from their wealth managers is growing. Today's family offices, private banks and other financial institutions are expected to know how best to manage a portfolio, maximise returns, ensure compliance and much more besides.

ARTBANX has been designed to help financial institutions significantly upgrade the art wealth management services that they are able to offer to their clients – enabling them to develop closer relationships and become ever more invaluable in the process.

Key to the success of every financial institution is the ability to grow and protect the value of clients' investments. Increasingly, however, wealth managers are being tasked by (U)HNWI's to manage art collections – under the assumption that their financial insight extends across every asset class. ARTBANX helps financial institutions to develop a more holistic approach to wealth management by providing a full suite of digital tools that assist with art appraisal, reporting, art insurance, collection management and more. Beyond this, a tailored Art Advisory service is available on demand that connects financial institutions to the deep industry expertise that their clients need.

We Understand the Key Concerns of Financial Institutions

Complexities of Artwork Valuation

Sales data across the art world is highly dispersed, incomplete and often lacks transparency – thus complicating valuations. This makes effective portfolio management ever more taxing, as clients need to know true valuations both today and tomorrow.

Information Asymmetry

Many financial institutions lack the deep insight into the art world that their clients expect. This puts them at a distinct disadvantage – and may make clients look elsewhere for guidance. Wealth managers need game-changing tools that will help them to elevate their level of service.

Lack of Transparency

Sales data in the world of art is recorded in a variety of different ways – and sometimes not even recorded at all. This frustrating lack of clarity obscures true valuations and makes it challenging for financial institutions to effectively manage their clients' portfolios. The demand for more transparency has never been greater.

Lack of Bankable Solutions

Our vision is to make art a bankable asset class by unlocking its value and empowering collectors and their support network to make informed financial decisions. This is achieved by providing the best art market data in the world and a seamless, user-friendly way to trade and manage collections digitally.

Illiquidity of the Market

When clients want to sell artworks from their collection, traditional channels take time. This can greatly diminish the appeal of art as an investable asset – and create problems for wealth managers who want to offer fast, agile solutions. The answer for effective art wealth management lies at the intersection of art and technology.

Multiple Service Providers

Financial institutions regularly have to operate across several different digital platforms to meet the demands of their clients – because all-encompassing solutions are difficult to find. There is a demand for a single platform that facilitates every aspect of art collection management.

The ARTBANX Solution

By tapping into an incredibly rich stream of art market data, you can quickly address the problem of information asymmetry. This powerful new competitive edge gives you the ability to make informed art investment decisions on behalf of your clients based on critical intelligence.

A lack of regulation across the art sector increases the risk of tax and insurance fraud and money laundering. To address this, ARTBANX makes use of KYC and AML security protocols – and employs two-factor authentication to further safeguard users and the portfolios under their stewardship.

Your success as a financial institution can be measured in black and white terms: have you been able to increase the value of a client's portfolio? With ARTBANX at your fingertips, you will be able to trade and liquidate rapidly and safely, with decisions backed by industry-leading art market data.

Logging in and out of multiple art collection management platforms is highly inefficient and detracts from the important business of managing and growing a client's portfolio. ARTBANX was created so that every possible tool that a fund manager could need is available under one login. It is the very essence of a 360-degree service.

A misplaced whisper or a clumsy purchase attempt can significantly affect the value of a particular artwork. That is why ARTBANX lets you trade anonymously on behalf of clients, and allows you to test the market without fear of adverse publicity or a shift in valuation.

When acquiring new artworks to add to a client's collection, you can rely on ARTBANX to ensure that all necessary due diligence is taken care of – at the highest possible level. By removing this complex step from the shoulders of financial institutions, we ensure that transactions are both streamlined and secure.

Unrivalled Portfolio Transparency

Bring the art collections under your management into focus with practical insights such as portfolio value, sell-through rate and artwork performance. Organise and leverage collections using the unique ARTBANX tags system.
