Title insurance for fine art and important collectibles will become an industry standard just like title insurance for real property. Those works that cannot qualify for title insurance will become unmarketable.

The Ivy Family Office Network hosted its December 2014 Family Office Outlook Forum in Miami, FL on December 1st. Judith Pearson, President of ARIS Title Insurance, led a panel discussion on “Art Loans and Transactions of Interest”.

Pearson said, “Private investors are focusing on alternative asset classes. Fine art and other important collectibles have all experienced significant returns when well advised investors have carefully committed capital to these assets.”

“But the escalation of values for fine art and other collectibles are bringing collectors and investors to understand the need for implementing transactional standards in the art market similar to transactional standards that exist in all other asset classes.”

Finally “Ownership and therefore title insurance is the keystone for fine art and other important collectibles to transition from a passion purchase to an asset class. Improper asset management for art can have a significant impact on collectors' tax, trust and estate plans. We believe that title insurance for fine art and important collectibles will become an industry standard just like title insurance for real property. Ultimately those works that cannot qualify for title insurance will become unmarketable.”

Other speakers on the panel included Elizabeth von Habsburg of Winston Art Group, Stephen Brodie of Herrick Feinstein & Annelien Bruins, of Tang Art Advisory.
