build a legacy.
The time-tested tradition of corporate art collecting
Since the 1950s, when David Rockefeller started an art acquisition programme at Chase Manhattan Bank, Corporate Art Collecting has been a preferred strategy for corporations to build their legacy, promote philanthropy, and diversify their investment portfolio with high quality artwork.
Today, corporations as wide-ranging as JPMorgan Chase, Deutsche Bank and Microsoft – as well as smaller family owned Corporate Collections, actively acquire art to expand their robust collection. This is a key pillar of their long-term wealth creation strategy and cultural sophistication and appreciation.
Barclays Capital claimed in 2005 that if 10% of a financial portfolio was allotted to art over a 10-20 year period, it would lower portfolio risk.
