Art tokenization allows you to own and trade masterworks of fine art on a regulated and transparent marketplace.
Artemundi has partnered with Switzerland and Singapore based Sygnum Bank which facilitates access to digital marketplaces for tokenized artworks and lowers the entrance barriers to the art market under Swiss banking regulations. On its blockchain-based trading platform, institutional and private investors, collectors and art enthusiasts may buy and sell fractionalized ownership of blue-chip artworks, selected for Sygnum’s platform, starting from 1000 CHF per token.

The Guernica V. Fund
The Guernica V. Fund was specially created to face the current COVID-19 global emergency.
Understanding that macroeconomic distortions can have ripple effects that quickly metastasize, we launched this fund to offer investors the opportunity to transfer some liquidity into an asset well-suited to preserving and enhancing wealth in times of extreme uncertainty.
In a post-2008 world, financial planning is a must. Right now, the opportunity to invest in high art is second to none. We are reserving investment allocations.

heritage & taxation
As art collectors ourselves, we understand the intricate balance between the emotional motivations and the financial footprint of each art treasure hunt. Regardless of the size of a collection, estate planning is an essential step that empowers the collector through an active role to ensure his or her artistic vision will endure over time.
Our key to succession planning of a collection is, first and foremost, to understand the collector’s vision and innermost wishes. And from there, we can craft provisions and mechanisms before disposition to ensure fairness, avoid family disputes and protects the beneficiaries from expensive taxes and art management workload.
