There are few people better qualified to run an art finance firm than art collector and former Wall Street shark Asher Edelman (who is also behind Artemus in these pages). Art Assure is an art finance firm ‘dedicated to minimising uncertainty and risk for both sellers and purchasers of fine art through innovative strategies and financial services.’ The business will lend using ‘art, and art alone, as collateral’, and it boasts ‘unprecedented experience in the worlds of art and finance’. Art Assure specialises in consignment loans which advance up to 50 percent of the estimated value of a work or collection, while you are waiting for liquidity — which can often be subject to delay — from either a private buyer or auction.
