This book offers an overview of how to manage private art collections, providing essential insights on art wealth management, art investment, art governance, and succession planning for art assets. It offers practical recommendations on sound art collection governance, but also examines the background of art markets and price building, including the influence of fashion and trends. Throughout history, art patronage has played an important role in the wealth of ultra-high-net-worth families and led to private museums funded by philanthropist collectors in order to celebrate their own tastes and leave a lasting legacy. Today, as a result of the growth of art investing by a new generation of wealthy collectors, not only artists but also wealthy families, sophisticated investors and their close advisors now face a more complex set of financial and managerial needs. As such, the contributions in this book will be of interest to collecting families, family offices, and professional advisors seeking to integrate art into their overall wealth management strategy, and to scholars in the fields of cultural economics, art dealers, curators, and art lovers.

“When bankers get together for dinner, they discuss Art. When artists get together for dinner they discuss money.” (Oscar Wilde) Works of art are unique and highly heterogeneous but if they are traded, they share the common purpose of creating income. However, not only artists will discuss money at dinner, also bankers while they discuss art, are likely to talk about financial gains through investments in art. In economics a small group of researchers has examined whether this kind of investment is profitable or not. Although findings are not consistent, some authors conclude that art, compared to equity or bonds, does perform relatively well and offers diversification benefits in investment portfolios. Despite the inconsistency of findings, this research has led to a growing interest in art investment. Promoters of art investment like art investment funds work on a transformation of art into a new and widely accepted asset class, which they hope will prospectively be included in investment portfolios in the same way as real estate (Picinati di Torcello (2012): 15). Investment in art is determined by the expected price appreciation of art works in the future (Stein (1977): 1021). The quantity of original artworks, at least by deceased artists, cannot be augmented and the elasticity of supply is zero (Baumol (1986): 10). The future prices of art works as investment goods will thus depend on demand as well as on wealth of individuals and institutions at the sales date (Goetzmann (1993): 1371). The greater the purchasing power of prospective buyers, the more art is being bought and the higher art prices will be (Goetzmann et al. (2009): 2). Consequently art prices are expected to react to changes in economic prosperity and to fluctuate in the course of the business cycle. Business cycle research is a vital branch of macroeconomics and many theories and studies exist which examine the boom and bust periods of the economy as different phases of business cycles. Contrary there is little research which looks at “the link between the art market and the broader economy” (ibid: 4).This master thesis aims at contributing insights on this link by analysing the behavior of art prices under different macroeconomic conditions. Precisely, the objective is to assess the characteristics of art prices as business cycle indicator for the U.S. economy. [...]

What is your definition of a fulfilling life and how does an enjoyable retirement fit into that vision?
Author: Gary S. Williams
Publisher: Emerson Pub
What is your definition of a fulfilling life and how does an enjoyable retirement fit into that vision? Life is short; we have a limited time to choose our path, reach or dreams and goals and make our lives gratifying and our legacy everlasting.I wrote The Art of Retirement to serve as a guide; a book to help you with your life's journey by educating and inspiring you to make the most of your time on this planet or as Ronnie Lott would say, "Exhaust life." Retirement planning is much more than making sure you have enough money. Of course this is important and thoroughly discussed; certainly the security and lifestyle that money provides is a key part of your life. However, the financial aspect of planning your retirement is just part of the picture.Life is like art in many respects. It is unique to each one of us. It has the opportunity to be great as well as the potential for less-then-desired results. Like a sculpture, it can be molded and changed. Or like a painter standing in front of a blank canvas, the future is limited only by creativity and resources--whether that is money or the number of colors available for your palette.In keeping with the art metaphor, I have woven the story of Michelangelo's life and art into The Art of Retirement to help you create your own life's masterpiece. As you read this book and begin the process of creating your masterpiece, you will:* Gain perspective on what you value. I will share the story of my dear friend and former NFL player, O.J. Brigance, and his battle with ALS to help you gain perspective and appreciate even with adversity (i.e. poor health, poor investment performance, unable to save enough, etc.) you can still strive to achieve the most rewarding life given your circumstances.* Understand how your emotions (and decisions) can be impacted by our 24/7 access to financial news through broadcast media, print media, and the Internet. Being armed with knowledge of behavioral finance will allow you to avoid costly mistakes due to how our brain deals with money and financial issues.* Be inspired by real-life stories of people: o Who turned hobbies into second careers o Who used the skill set they learned in the business world to improve a non-profit organization o Who used their unique skills from their occupation (i.e., eye doctor) to help those less fortunate around the world* Learn the difference between planning retirement haphazardly without a plan, using rules-of-thumb, or using financial planning software to analyze retirement needs to compare to your resources.* How to accurately determine your risk tolerance and capacity, the most important and first step to building an investment portfolio.* Gain perspective of how investments behave while understanding current and potential future economic trends that may affect the traditional approaches of investment management.* Learn when active vs. passive management may be the best investment solution and how to implement alternative investments, such as hedge funds and private equity, to potentially minimize risk through diversification while increasing investment performance.* Introspectively look at your life to determine if you have the time, training and temperament to manage your own investments and plan for your retirement.* Appreciate the differences among the multitude of advisors and how to select a competent one that can become your trusted partner.Through the lens of both my personal life and experiences--raised by my father and growing up in a blue collar, welfare-dependent home--and through my occupation as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(tm) practitioner, I will share my experience and knowledge to help you enjoy a beautiful life and create a legacy that stands the test of time--a Masterpiece!
