Art Market Consultancy - The most comprehensive source of information on artist investment potential for fractional ownership and/or collecting based on patented technology


Are you interested in investing in art? Do you need advice on how to best allocate your fractional art ownership investments? We provide our premium subscribers with information on the investment potential of almost 1500 of the world's most active individual artists based on their financial results in the repeat sale auction market since the start of 2000. In addition, we provide an individualized artist investment quotient (AIQ) produced by our proprietary Computerized Art Investment Estimation System (U.S. PATENT 11,200,622) for each of these artists based on the users preference for each of four behavioral performance factors which play a role in the decision process involving illiquid assets. We will also provide to the user an individualized list of artists that have the best AIQ given the users behavioral variable weights and purchase price point comfort zone.

We provide explanations of the analytical tools and guidance for their use to help the user decide for themselves which artists to consider in achieving their personal financial and collecting goals. All of the analysis tools are based on works that were sold at auction since 2000 and had been previously sold at auction. There are currently over 53,000 of these repeat sale pairs in the database. The site will be updated with new data after every auction season.

Subscribers will be asked to weight the following four behavioral performance factors:

• MARKET ADJUSTED RISK PER UNIT OF RETURN! (MARPUR)

• SALABILITY! (S) THE PERCENT OF WORKS OFFERED THAT ACTUALLY SOLD

• LOSS LIKELIHOOD! (LL) THE PERCENT OF WORKS THAT SOLD AT A LOSS

• RELATIVE LIQUID MARKE SIZE!(RLMS) WHAT IS THE MARKET SIZE OF EACH ARTIST RELATIVE TO THE ARTIST WITH THE MOST MARKET LIQUIDITY

These factors play an important role in determining which artist looks most promising from an investment perspective.

The site also provides information on the correlation of the semi annual returns among over 100 of the most liquid artists. Risk return maps are also provided for a user designated set of artists. In addition the site will provide information on the health of the repeat sale auction art market via two proprietary performance measures. The first being an Art Market Performance Ratio® (AMPR) based on the returns produced by the works that sell and the percent of works that do not sell each semi annual auction season. The second being a High Net Worth Exuberance Indicator® (HNWEI) based on the mean of the percent paid above a mark to market price of all works sold at each quarterly auction period that were purchased previously at auction.

You can explore the capabilities of this site for free by simply registering. But before you register we ask you to reveal your relative preference for the four behavioral performance factors by using the preference slider below. The only constrain on your input is that the sum of the weights given to each factor be equal to one and that the minimum weight for any factor being 5%.
