Fine art, including contemporary painting, can be a valuable and fulfilling addition to any investment portfolio. While the stock and bond markets may fluctuate, the art market has a tendency to operate independently, offering potential diversification benefits to investors. This was demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the contemporary art market faced challenges due to the cancellation of live auctions. However, the shift to online sales helped the market recover and even saw record-breaking levels of turnover and transactions.
In addition to its potential for diversification, art has a long history of serving as an inflation hedge. During periods of high inflation, the values of art auctions tend to increase as wealthy individuals seek to secure their wealth through tangible assets such as art or real estate. This trend is encouraging for the future of art investment, but it’s important for investors to be selective and avoid getting caught up in the allure of potentially high profits. By building a broad collection and holding onto works for a long period of time, it is possible to make money investing in art.
