Featured portfolio holdings
Untitled (Bracco di Ferro) (1983)
Basquiat holds the record for the most expensive work ever sold by an American artist. Works featuring anatomical drawings are particularly desirable, as anatomy was one of Basquiat’s major childhood influences. This work features the iconic crown motif.
Women with Boats and Ducks (1986)
Arpita Singh is the flag bearer of contemporary narrative art in India and remains among the top ten highest-selling artists. We invested in her work as an exception to our global top 100 artists criteria since most of her larger sized works tend to beat auction estimated by over 50%. This work is 48 x 47⅞ (121.9 × 121.6 cm).
Coup de Vent (1881)
Since 2013, Monet has consistently ranked as one of the ten best-selling artists, with over one hundred years of auction history to solidify his position. In 2018, the value of his artwork at auction came second only to Pablo Picasso. Monet’s work exhibits predictable returns with low volatility: the average return was 13.6% annually, with a standard deviation of 6.7% since 2000.
Girl Trouble (1999)
1999 is one of the most desirable years for Cecily Brown, considered seminal for her career. Four out of five record prices are for her works completed in 1998-1999. The most expensive work, Suddenly Last Summer, from this series was sold in 2018 for $6.8 million.

Risks and returns
Past performance shows lower risk
The art market has remained resilient in 2020 amid the pandemic-induced turbulence. In the first seven months of 2020, the art market outperformed most major asset classes, with Contemporary art achieving the strongest gains. Low-interest rates, ongoing digitization, and a growing recognition of art as an investment portfolio diversifier could further support its prospects.
There is no central exchange for art assets and exiting investments can be time-consuming and also dependent on auction calendars of major auction houses.
Lack of data
Because art markets are opaque and sales are dominated by an oligopoly of auction houses, acquiring reliable sales and provenance data is challenging.
Art assets yield a negative cash flow because of insurance, storage and conservation expenses, which is typically 0.3% of the purchase price annually.
Prone to fads
Art prices are very dependent on trends and cultural narratives. Abstract trends like the works of Kusama are replacing impressionist subject matter of nature and landscapes.
