Art Futures Group is the world’s leading Chinese Contemporary Art investment broker, with over two decades of expertise brokering contemporary and classical art.
We offer the perfect blend of art appreciation and market expertise to help you add works from this emerging market to your investment portfolio. Based in Hong Kong with offices in London, New York, Singapore and Malaysia, we are ideally placed to help clients take advantage of this lucrative sector.
Hong Kong is one of the world’s top markets for Chinese art and arguably the best location in the world to find reputable Chinese contemporary art. Our presence in Hong Kong helps collectors and investors make art investment a transparent, secure and profitable venture.
Hong Kong has a well established market and we have both the knowledge and the history to assure high quality and respected Chinese artists. Now the third largest art market in the world, Hong Kong’s tax-free status and numerous other tax benefits make it an attractive location for the buying and selling of art. Zero tax is paid on the purchase of artworks, meaning all profits go the seller.
Driven by demand, the overseas market for Chinese art reached a historic high in 2015, totalling $2.6 billion in sales and reaching a size more than half that of mainland China for the first time. The average sale price increased by 8% year-on-year to $54,265.
Our expert consultants will tailor recommendations to suit your needs. Using a combination of research into an artist’s background, public profile, mainstream output and auction records, we profile recommended investments. Combining an aesthetic awareness with a proven eye for capital growth, we focus on mid-career artists who have the potential to maximise the return on your investment.
Once the purchase is arranged, we help you maximise returns both during your ownership and on release. In addition, our experts constantly monitor worldwide art sales and markets to give us an unrivalled knowledge base from which to recommend the right time to buy each investment or to sell it based on market conditions. Our brokerage service is fully personalised, giving you complete ownership, full control and a wealth of location-based tax benefits.
