With ART LEASING, AUCTION LEASING and ART RATING, we are opening up access to the capital- and know-how-intensive acquisition of high-quality art to a wider circle of art lovers. Our services also enable newcomers to the art market or companies in the process of being established to evaluate the value of exquisite works of art and to finance them in a liquidity-preserving manner.

After leasing, the work of art belongs to you, it is not a rental, but like a car.

The professional way to finance art

ART LEASING is enjoying increasing popularity. A key success factor is the simple and professional leasing process. Our proven and tested leasing model is based on cooperation with national and international galleries and a Swiss bank as refinancing partner.

Leasing art in three steps

Art enjoyment in instalments or on a permanent basis

Depending on the chosen term, you settle the leasing sum up to the residual value with regular monthly payments over three or four years. EXAMPLE: For a work of art costing CHF 10,000, the monthly leasing installment excluding VAT and all-risk insurance is CHF 237 for a term of three years or CHF 182 for a term of four years. After two years and at the end of the lease, there is the option of returning the work of art and, if necessary, leasing another work.

If you decide to purchase the leased art object, you can purchase the work of art at the end of the leasing period on the basis of a separate purchase contract using the deposit paid at the beginning, which equals the very amount of the residual value.

AUCTION LEASING

Participation at 50 percent of your bid

LIQUIDITY-SAVING FINANCING — EXTRAORDINARY BIDING OPPORTUNITIES — EXTENDING YOUR BIDDING LIMIT — ALL RISK ART INSURANCE INCLUDING — THREE OR FOUR YEARS OF LEASING — SWISS LEADING AUCTION HOUSE

Since December 2017 Art Leasing & Invest AG has been working together with KOLLER AUKTIONEN. Customers domiciled in Switzerland benefit from the unique opportunity of AUCTION LEASING at the annually about 70 individual auctions of the leading auction house. The attractive art financing is suitable for auction visitors who appreciate maximum flexibility. Art Leasing & Invest AG finances 50 percent of your bid.

Simple and fast processing

An AUCTION LEASING at Koller Auction House offers you two procedural variants: You contact us before the auction and we agree on the terms with you or you bid at the auction for the work of art of your choice and we enter into your bidding contract after successfully reviewing your leasing application. You can obtain a leasing application from the auction house or you can request it from Art Leasing & Invest AG. AUCTION LEASING is currently only available to persons and companies domiciled in Switzerland. The artwork must remain in Switzerland during the leasing period.

Liquidity scope for the acquisition of art

Whether you don’t want to miss a unique bidding opportunity or want to extend your personal bidding – AUCTION LEASING offers the right financing solution. ONE EXAMPLE: You bid for a piece of art at the auction at a selling price of CHF 20,000 (including premium). After transferring a first leasing instalment as a down payment as well as a deposit in the amount of the residual value, your monthly leasing instalment will amount to CHF 322 for a leasing period of three years or CHF 250 for a leasing period of four years. At the end of the leasing period you take over your piece of art at its residual value by offsetting it against the deposit already paid.

ART RATING

Professional rating for price determination

ART RATING offers security in determining the price of high-quality art. Established art collections use it just as much as newcomers to the art market. After a detailed analysis, we evaluate the work of art with a corresponding rating (AAA to C) – the perfect basis for deciding whether to buy art or evaluate art that has already been purchased.

Analysis of all value drivers

Sustainable art keeps its value. Decisive factors are visibility, quality, differentiation and representation of the artist. Art Leasing & Invest AG examines all relevant value drivers of art and summarizes the results in a clear rating. This can be used as a reliable basis for the acquisition of art, for the assessment of the value development or as a starting point for value-enhancing measures. ART RATING is also suitable for insurance purposes or as a basis for granting loans.
