Forbes’s Keren Blankfeld spoke to Jim Hedges of Montage Finance which offers loans against art but also makes investments in art like this one:
His group’s latest significant investment was on a collection of hundreds of pieces of art for which they paid $20 million. The idea, he says, is to send the collection on tour in museums for a couple of years and make it better known, especially in places like Brazil and China, which are producing a growing number of enthusiastic art buyers. Hedges expects the rate of return for the entire collection to be three times over the entire holding period.
