With the ever-increasing interest in investment in fine art, this timely and informative course explores the use and performance of fine art as a financial asset. The course facilitates discussions regarding what a painting is worth and why, if a work of art can be used as collateral and how buyers should approach “investing” in art. Participants gain an understanding of how fine art maintains its value over time, learn about the varying collecting categories within fine art and observe how an art investment compares with other types of financial investments.
