SCF FINE ARTS ADVISORY (SCF)
SCF FINE ARTS ADVISORY ENCOMPASSES SCF CONSULTING AND SCF INVESTMENT FORUMS. ITS GOAL IS TWO FOLD YET COMPLEMENTARY; TO LEND ITS EXTENSIVE INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE TO ADVISING AND EDUCATING, WHILE ALSO CREATING SIGNIFICANT RETURNS FOR ITS CLIENTS THROUGH AN ANALYTICAL APPROACH TO ART AND MARKET VALUATION.
THE FIRM IS FOCUSED ON ANTICIPATING ACCELERATING MARKETS, EMERGING MARKETS, MARKET VACUUMS AND MARKET INEFFICIENCIES. SCF IS INVOLVED IN BOTH THE RECOGNITION OF AND, TO THE DEGREE POSSIBLE, THE CREATION OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES. WE RECOGNIZE THAT THE ART WORLD IS COMPOSED OF DISTINCT AND SOMETIMES COMPETING MARKETS DRIVEN BY FUNDAMENTALLY DIFFERENT HISTORIOGRAPHIC AND, CONSEQUENTLY, INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS.
SCF is a well-established consultancy and advisory which has served the interests of private collectors, investors, art investment funds, and art institutions over the past twenty years. Our primary objective is to represent clients in matters involving the sale or acquisition of works, the composition of coherent collections, and the preparation of sound investment portfolios.
Our relationship to clients is described by what objectives lay behind their investment and collecting agendas. We believe that both should be guided by clear purpose, whether it be the creation of significant and coherent collections, the management of existing collections, or the acquisition of sound fine arts assets. We believe these to be closely related, indeed inseparable, issues.
We feel the objectives of buyers and / or sellers should be brought into a mutual dependency which serves the best investment and collecting interests of both. Such a targeted exchange of works entails clear financial advantages as it is likely to identify the best and most financially driven buyers and sellers, based on clearly defined needs.
Our relationships to our clients are ones of consultant and representative, and it is to our clients that we are directly responsible. Every effort is made to enforce the integrity of business procedures, to control the safety of the work, and to insure the confidentiality of the client.
