Store of Value for Inflationary Periods

Art performs better than other financial assets in periods of high or rising inflation as shown in the right chart showing the returns on various assets over the period 1973-2012 in the United States by Saachi Art in 2018*.

Excellent Historical Returns

Blue-Chip art provided THREE TIMES more returns than Dow Jones and SP500 indices. Annual average returns between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2021. Absolute values based on 100 as of January 1, 2000.

‘First-in-Class’ Alternative Asset

Art funds dedicated to the world’s top 100 artists are more liquid than most alternative assets and offer returns equal to or better than venture capital, real estate investment, and private debt assets in both Europe and North America. The art of the ‘blue-chip’ artists is the most liquid in the market because it is the most demanded and of the highest quality in the world. In general, the art market since 2000 has remained constant while the highest value, of more than €250,000 for the artworks of blue-chip artists, has stood out strongly and significantly outperformed the art market.

Theme-based Funds, our Key Differentiator

Our differentiation from traditional art funds is based on the development of Investment Themes defined from the analysis of global trends in art, economy, décor, and luxury for the period 2025-2030. We cannot predict the future, but we can identify clear growth opportunities for high-quality art and diversify smartly. Themes such as female empowerment, diversity, nature, anniversaries of major artistic events, adoption of global social and political changes, together with the detection of influences from prestigious analysts of the luxury market, and interior and exterior decoration.

Added-Value to the Investor

The acquired artworks associated with each Investment Theme are paintings and sculptures by blue-chip artists. To offer an additional profit from the sale of works of art, ArtsGain may create limited collections of associated NFTs, and fashion and design products associated with luxury brands if the artist’s image rights allow it. ArtsGain also promotes the exposition of the acquired works through loans to museums, luxury hotels, and private collectors that can generate an additional profit with an annual payment to the investor, and generate a substantial subsequent capital gain thanks to their exhibition.

Sustainable and Social Commitment

If the acquired works are stored at an acceptable cost and in a safe place, we do not move them. Thus, we move works of art only when it is essential and through the use of low CO2 emissions transport logistics, reusable transport materials, and pre-established transport routes thanks to our logistic partners. In the case of our own exhibition, we follow the recommendations of sustainable practices established by Ki Culture to promote sustainable management of cultural heritage.

We dedicate 0.3% of our funds to Social Art, that is, to singular artists to give visibility to art created by people with functional disabilities, mental illness, or people at risk of social exclusion through agreements with artistic communities or specialized NGOs.

When we select works of art linked to their Investment Theme, we take into account positive discrimination for the inclusion of underrepresented recognized artists and for greater recognition of women and LGBT+ artists.
