Personal, Confidential & Independent
The appraisal of your art, jewelry and other valuable collections forms the foundation for our all our services, including Advisory, Investment and Lending. Current values enable our team to advise you on managing risk and maximizing the value of your object or collection.
The Fine Art Group provides appraisals for a wide range of purposes, the most common being for Insurance, Taxation & Probate, Trusts & Estates, Donation, Family Division and Divorce, Damage and Post-Loss or Art as Collateral. In addition, we specialize in complicated and unique appraisal scenarios such as Fractional Interest and Leaseback.
A Process Tailored For You
Through preliminary, in-depth consultation, we establish your goals, expectations and specific requirements to tailor our services to achieve your objectives. We provide clients with an independent, white-glove service for navigating today’s complex art and collectibles market.
Our team will work with you, your fiduciaries, advisors and beneficiaries to confidentially value a single object to the comprehensive management of the collection. As an independent global appraisal firm, our team of over 75 specialists are uniquely qualified to provide values and have inside industry knowledge from global, national and regional markets.
All of our appraisers adhere to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP), the only set of standards that govern the appraisal profession. The IRS requires that appraisals be completed by USPAP compliant appraisers and that all appraisals submitted include a specific set of requirements.
In addition to being USPAP compliant, all of our appraisers are members of at least one of the three major appraisal associations: the Appraisers Association of America (AAA); the International Society of Appraisers (ISA) and the American Society of Appraisers (ASA).
