Art as an Alternative Investment
Among seasoned investors, fine art is generally acknowledged to possess features that make it a particularly attractive alternative asset class. By looking at performance statistics and reviewing a range of academic and empirical research on the subject, this course will examine the characteristics of fine art that allow it to be categorized in this manner. It will consider appropriate investment strategies involving fine art, and the analytic tools that enable us to measure the performance of art investment portfolios compared to conventional investments. This course will also explore the emergence and experience of institutional and other art investment funds in recent years, including a case study based on the first institutional investor in fine art—the British Rail Pension Fund. A background in finance is not required.

Tremendous and professional in every respect. Though I have been in the art field for years I learned much and gained a new perspective.
