STORE OF WEALTH


 

This fund will primarily invest in Modern art. Modern art remained the second largest sector of the fine art market, accounting for 30% of the value of fine art auction sales (up 2% year-on year). While the Modern sector came into focus in 2015 for record-breaking prices at auction, just as in the Post-War and Contemporary sector, the majority of the number of Modern works sold (90%) were for price points below $50,000. Modern art remained the second largest sector of the fine art auction market, accounting for 30% the value of auction sales and 27% by volume.

MODERN MARKET


Modern art is rooted in The Industrial Revolution, which fast-forwarded society through tremendous advances in manufacturing, transportation, and technology, greatly influencing economics, culture, and politics while leaving few aspects of society untouched. Western Europe was the origin of the Revolution, but it spread quickly to North America and, eventually, to the rest of the world. For any artist living in this period, life was inspiring. These painters seized onto the changing landscape around them and used new approaches and techniques to comment on their new society.

 


SUMMARY


This fund will primarily acquire assets in the Modern art segment and focus on store of wealth. Other sectors this fund will invest in are:

a. Post-War and Contemporary art is defined by works of art created after the end of World War II in 1945. Many new artistic movements flourished during this time period, including but not limited to Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and Abstract Expressionism. Most auctions refer to this period as works of art from 1945 to 1970.

b. Emerging, defined as artists who have started to create work over the past decade.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Arthena builds funds from collections of individual works of art. To build a fund, Arthena targets acquisition of works that we predict to grow 20% year over year for the five year lifetime of the fund with an acceptable amount of risk. To make intelligent predictions, we use cutting-edge analytics on millions of historical auction results from major auction houses from around the world. At every step of the process we seek to provide our investors with high performing assets in the art world with risks uncorrelated from other markets.

Arthena acquires works in the emerging, post-war contemporary, and modern art market sectors, which together account for over 70% of the U.S. market and have shown the highest rate of growth over the past 10 years. In general, Arthena rates the emerging artist market as aggressive investment, the post-war contemporary market as moderate investment, and the modern market as store of wealth. Arthena’s funds diversify across these three market segments, with percentage of investment in each market sector weighted on investor risk tolerance.
