New challenges for the art and cultural market

The unprecedented development of the art market over the past few years has resulted in the ‘financialization’ of the art market. Art is now seen not only as an object of pleasure, but also as a new alternative asset class with interesting business opportunities.

Meanwhile, the globalization of culture means that art organizations and culture-related companies are facing a number of strategic issues critical to reaching their goals. Developments like these have created the need for specialized art and finance services to support them.
