Art Advisers
Company Size

Formerly head of RBC Wealth Management’s art services, Luke Dugdale co-founded Cadell + Co (named after the Scottish Colourist) and oversees advisory and strategic services at the firm. Dugdale’s vision was to help companies to establish robust art policy and procedures to apply ‘the highest levels of professional standards to transactions in a sector that is unregulated, highly conflicted and usually outside the “comfort zone” of most fiduciaries’. It is the first art advisory firm to be FCA-regulated, bringing professionalism and transparency to transactions and art loans and introducing art portfolio management. It is a response to a world where art is surging in value. Cadell + Co continues to grow and now has 30 trust companies on its books.
