Art as Alternative Investment – artmarketblog.com
The interest in alternative investments which are those investments that are not one of the traditional investments such as bonds, stocks, cash, money markets etc. has been on the increase in recent years as people seek safer and more stable alternatives to the highly volatile stock market and money markets. Alternative investments such as art attract even more interest in times like these when the traditional investment routes take a battering and begin to look rather unappealing. The Australian Triple J radio station aired a half hour show on alternative investments today which featured some information and advice on investing in art which was provided by myself. If you would like to listen to the show and hear my advice on collecting and investing in art then visit one of the links below which will open the program in the specified formats (section on art investment is near the end of the program).
