How we do it

dot-artemundi

Artemundi is the only art investment company with a tested methodology spearheaded by the core belief that transparency is the best policy. We provide accurate valuations; keep administrative, operational, and maintenance costs under control; and apply econometric indexes to our appreciation strategies in arms-length transactions.

Our methodology

We have developed a proprietary investment protocol for each potential artwork acquisition based on decades of experience. Quality, provenance, condition, uniqueness, demand, and timing are some of the vital factors considered during appraisals.

• Compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations.
• Operation under Know Your Customer (KYC) guidelines.
• Verification of the Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) is critical to safeguarding each of our transactions’ integrity.
• Observance of the OECD Standards to fight corruption, bribery and promote integrity in the public and private sectors.
• Practice aligned with the Principles for Responsible Investment guidelines promoted by The United Nations.

– By incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors in our investment decisions, ensure that all relevant criteria are accounted for when assessing risk and return.
