“When you use a tool like ‘Art Succession', rest assured that prized possessions will be valued according to their unique market value, and that they will go exactly where and to whom you envision them going,” says Adamo.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2010
Today Integrity Wealth Management (IWM) is proud to announce Art Succession, a unique consulting service for collectors, by collectors. Whether you are a collector of art, antiques, wine, coins, gems, cars or anything of significant monetary value, the ‘Art Succession’ program ensures that an individual’s collectibles are handled properly from a financial perspective. ‘Art Succession’ is the only service of its kind in the world, and is quite different from general estate planning.
“Collectors and their advisors need an advocate who knows how to lift these special possessions out of the estate planning process, and treat them with the special handling every collection deserves" says Michael Mendelsohn, creator of ‘Art Succession,’ founder of The Briddge Group, one of America’s ‘Top 100 Collectors’ and author of the award-winning book ‘Life is Short, Art is Long: Maximizing Estate Planning Strategies for Collectors of Art, Antiques and Collectibles.’ Mendelsohn is a collector, philanthropist, world-renowned lecturer and author on inheritance planning and preservation of assets.
The ‘Art Succession’ program, endorsed by The Art Succession Advisory Council, is unique in that it gets collectors, attorneys, accountants, financial planners and family members on the same page and educates them on the value of the individual’s collection. That way, whether the collection will go to a charity, museum, university, family member or what have you, the value has been identified, taxes have been properly managed, heirs have been named and debilitating estate auctions will be avoided. This program is a product of the Art Succession Advisory CouncilTM, of which IWM is an active member.
Says IWM founder and CEO Ralph Adamo, “It’s one thing to have a collection, but quite another to make sure it grows while you’re living – and lives beyond your years.” He continued, “When you use a tool like ‘Art Succession,’ you can rest assured that your prized possessions will be valued according to their unique market value, and that they will go exactly where and to whom you envision them going.”
