Art as and Asset Class

Day Star Partners has a solid experience in promoting artists on the international scene and in the creation and management of investment funds focused on Fine Arts.


Our mission is to create more liquidity in the art market and help artists, collectors, art dealers, museums and other professionals to profitably leverage and monetize works of art allowing a wider range of investors to diversify in art investments while we build a valuable collection of contemporary art in the medium and long term.


Funds provide diversification and economies of scale by pooling assets to gain greater exposure across the art world. Diversification across geographies and mediums are essential to avoid concentration risks. Economies of scale allow for assembly of research and operational expertise, management skills, as well as buying and selling power.

Having a robust infrastructure is essential in order to support the acquisition of large scale works and a global lending program. In turn, museum exposure for artworks in the collection enhance the value of these works, creates visibility for the collection and eventually build, which in itself enhances the value of every work in the collection.


A virtuous circle.


  • Corporate governance and a regulated structure protect investors from potential conflicts of interest, as well as providing tax efficiency and regular accounting and reporting.

  • A clearly defined investment strategy, with proper risk management and exit strategy.

  • Independence and objectivity of the service providers of the fund, and related segregation of duties.

  • Combining social responsibility, intellectual rigor, education and lifestyle enhancement for interested investors

  • Eligible investors have the possibility to borrow or acquire works from the collection.
