DAY STAR FINE ART
OUR FINE ART SERVICES
CONTEMPORARY ART COLLECTION
Contemporary art is the fastest growing segment of the circa US$60 billion per annum global art market, but also the most volatile. It has the greatest potential for market outperformance, but professional guidance is the key to successful investment in this area. When the right selections are made price appreciation can be exceptional. Contrary to the myth that artists' works appreciate mostly after death, artists usually appreciate the most during their lifetime.
Particularly, we believe that works made during the last two decades in emerging markets, with the underpinnings of an era of significant social flux, are the most likely to appeal to the current generation of new wealth. Locally established artists in emerging economies, yet to gain international recognition, present the greatest opportunity.
STRUCTURING ART INVESTMENT FUNDS
In 2012, we launched our first investment fund, Day Star Fine Art Fund I dedicated to masterpieces of 20th century artists, active until the end of 2017; Today in 2019, after rethinking our activities and a deep restructuring of the company, the founding partners have resumed the activity with new challenges and focused on contemporary artists. Currently we advise several funds each investing in different areas of the art market. Our existing investors include family offices, high net worth individuals, promoters and private banks.
We have the best experts in different jurisdictions, we can also deal with blockchain securitization of the fund.
We have built up a team with a wide and deep understanding of the art market to seek investment opportunities on behalf of our clients, sourcing deals from both auctions and private sales. All of our investments are subject to the same exacting due diligence process that we apply to purchases made for our private clients.
We continue to explore new projects in the art market.
Our funds are managed outside the UK. We are not authorised or regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and are not able to offer investment advice. Anyone considering an investment should consult their own professional investment adviser.

Day Star Collection provide liquidity to the Art renting program. Art renting is a convenient, flexible and economical way for clients to enjoy fine art in their hotels and offices. Renting is also available for special events and for home staging.
The fund is a new way to curate environments through art leasing. Working closely with real estate developers, corporations and hospitality groups, we provide innovative and cost-effective ways to showcase significant works of art within every scale of space or project, maintaining and elevating the backdrop and culture they have carefully curated.
Day Star Collection provide liquidity to the Art Lease-Back program. We’ve initiated the most innovative financing solution for art collections, the sale-leaseback. This entails a financial transaction in which clients owning fine art may sell portion or the totality of their collection to Day Star Collection.

The lease agreement provides the client with the option to repurchase the collection at any time during the lease at a per annum premium modestly above the initial sale price.
