Together with Arttactic, Deloitte publishes an annual report that summarizes trends in art finance and the art market more broadly*. As the intersection of art and finance grows, so does the need to quantify shifts in the market. The Art & Finance report provides collectors, consultants, and researchers, alike, with valuable survey statistics and original research.
Deloitte’s 2016 report was the last to publish the Mei-Moses art price index, considered to be an industry benchmark for art prices, which has since been acquired by Sotheby’s. A summary of the results can be found below or on page 104.
Section 4 of the 2017 publication will prove most useful for those considering an investment in Art. The report covers a range of information, including an overview of art investment funds and wealth management surveys.
* While Deloitte did release a 2018 report, it was only published in Italian. In the absence of major shifts in the world of art and finance in the interceding year, the 2017 report should provide readers with valuable and still relevant information.
