With Art’s non-correlation to traditional markets, an investment into art acts as the perfect investment hedge against market volatility. With full asset ownership, your funds are secured against a tangible asset with an inherent value.

History shows us that art is used as a safe, stable and secure investment vehicle during times of economic uncertainty so, with the impending recession that many economists are predicting will be long and deep, investors are turning to this tried, tested and proven investment strategy not only to protect their wealth but also to achieve high levels of capital growth.
A record turnover of £2.3 billion in 2021 – which was double the turnover of the previous year. The art market bounced back strongly in 2021, with aggregate sales of art and antiques by dealers and auction houses reaching an estimated £55 billion.
Art is a global commodity. It can be bought and sold between collectors anywhere on earth, making it a truly worldwide market.

Ideally, you should aim to hold on to the artwork for between 2 to 3 years although, to maximise your returns, you should aim for between 3 to 5 years.
Our pricing model includes insurance and storage of the artwork so the price you pay is fixed and final. There is a single commission at the end of the investment which is 20% of the profit of the final sale price of the artwork.
The artwork is stored in a London-based facility through our storage partner who specialise in the transportation and storage of museum-grade artwork. The exact location cannot be published for security reasons.
Quantus Gallery will assist you in selling the artwork by either placing the work with a private collector from our extensive network, hanging the work for sale in our gallery, marketing the work online through art platforms such as Artsy and Artnet, or placing the work with an auction house.
Quite simply because you will own a tangible, physical asset. By investing in stocks, bonds, or ISAs you are investing in an idea or an assumption that the economy and the markets will work in your favour and gain you capital return. With art you own the asset outright and, should you wish, you can view it in person or even hang it in your own home.
Whilst nobody would blame you for being overly cautious in the current environment, it should be noted that the value of your savings is currently dropping by the day. The current UK inflation rate is higher than any savings account that can be found from UK banks which means that holding on to your money is actually decreasing your overall net-worth and your purchasing power. This means that now is, in fact, the perfect time to make your finances work for you by investing in art.
By owning a tangible asset such as a piece of art, you have security in something physical that is not affected by news reports or market movements. Grove Square Galleries will provide certificates of ownership and a valuation so you will have all of the documents you need for insurance and security and, more importantly, peace of mind. We also offer you the option of professional storage so you can be sure that nothing untoward will ever happen to your investment.
