INVESTING IN ART

LOCALPAPER AND LIO MALCA HAVE TEAMED UP TO PROVIDE INVESTORS WITH A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO INVEST IN A HIGHLY ATTRACTIVE ASSET CLASS: FINE ART

ART AS AN ASSET CLASS


Including fine art in your investment portfolio provides diversification and allows for the potential to maximize your returns and lower overall risk.

WHY ISN’T EVERYONE INVESTING IN ART?

The barriers of entry are high and opaque. Throughout the years, success in the art markets has been associated with the high net worth crowd. Successfully procuring a high-end collection requires large amounts of capital and deep industry knowledge.


To bridge this gap, LocalPaper has teamed up with Lio Malca to OFFER a turnkey solution for sophisticated investors seeking exposure to the Contemporary blue-chip art market


When you invest in LocalPaper’s art offerings, rest assured that industry experts have carried out due diligence to ensure artwork authenticity and ownership recognition. We have also secured third-party appraisals, market comparables, insurance, and art storage.

THE ART MARKET


When comparing the two, it is evident that the art market has outperformed the S&P 500 significantly over the past 20 years.

Fine Art offers a competitive return relative to other tangible assets. According to Citibank’s Art Market Report, the contemporary art market has produced an annualized return of 7.5% over the past 30 years.

Meanwhile, other traditional asset classes such as developed investment grade fixed income and high yield fixed income have returned 6.5% and 8.1%, respectively.

Art’s low correlation to equities provides for a valuable and healthy portfolio diversification.

FINE ART’S CORRELATION WITH OTHER ASSET CLASSES

Notably, the art market’s historical performance is more closely correlated to that of cash (.34) than any other asset class. Moreover, it shows low or even inverse correlations with other asset classes, including the fixed income asset classes, whose return profile was similar.

WHO IS LIO MALCA?


Lio Malca is a renowned Colombian art collector, gallerist and hotelier with projects in New York (USA), Ibiza (Spain) and Tulum (Mexico).

In the early 1990s, Malca showed interest in young artists who were involved in the New York cultural scene. He was especially passionate about artists who pushed the limits of high and low art. Throughout the 1990s, Malca continued to invest in emerging art markets. Since then, Malca has expanded his interests as a collector and surrealist thinker, following his intuition and using his personal taste as a guide.

Lio’s collection is centered around the acquisition of works that defy the established historic narratives of high art. He always intends to blur the boundaries between the academic and institutional, and the urban and popular. He was an early visionary of Basquiat's work when Basquiat was only recognized by smaller circles in the art world.

Malca was also an early collector of artists such as Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, both iconic figures of the street art and contemporary art movements. He was a consistent supporter of their emerging art markets. Later, he began to collect work from Lowbrow artists such as Mark Ryden and Marion Peck.
