FAQs

What Is The Recommended Investment Amount?

The investment-grade artwork we deal with here at Grove Square Galleries ranges from approximately £5,000 to £10,000 although you could start your portfolio from as little as £2,000 and there is no limit to the amount you could invest.

How Long Do I Have To Hold On To The Artwork For?

Ideally, you should aim to hold on to the artwork for between 2 to 3 years although, to maximise your returns, you should aim for between 3 to 5 years.

What Are The Costs Involved?

Our pricing model includes insurance and storage of the artwork so the price you pay is fixed and final. There is a single commission at the end of the investment which is 20% of the profit of the final sale price of the artwork.

Where Is The Artwork Stored?

The artwork is stored in a London-based facility through our storage partner who specialise in the transportation and storage of museum-grade artwork. The exact location cannot be published for security reasons.

How Do I Sell The Artwork?

Grove Square Galleries will assist you in selling the artwork by either placing the work with a private collector from our extensive network, hanging the work for sale in our gallery, marketing the work online through art platforms such as Artsy and Artnet, or placing the work with an auction house.

Can I Sell The Artwork Quickly?

If you experience a change of circumstances and need to sell the artwork quickly, please get in touch with us and we will endeavor to find a buyer as quickly as we can.

Are There Any Tax Implications?

Yes. Capital Gains Tax is payable on the profit generated from the sale of a work of art worth £6,000 or more. However, for the tax year 2021-2022 your personal capital gains tax allowance is £12,300 so, unless you have used all of this allowance, the gains will be free of tax. Please do not take this information as tax advice and refer to a tax advisor for information regarding your own personal tax situation.

What Are The Risks?

Art is not a liquid asset and like any asset, the value of art can rise as well as fall. Depending on the artist’s performance and their future collectability, there may be a risk that the projected returns are not achieved.

What Are The Projected Returns?

Art investments have averaged a return of 8.43% since 2000 and have outperformed the FTSE by over 400% between 2000 and 2020 and there is nothing to suggest that these returns aren’t set to continue. Therefore, conservatively, we predict the equivalent of a return of approximately 8.5% per annum.

How Has Covid Effected The Art Market?

Apart from galleries closing their doors during the pandemic and more sales taking place online, the art market has performed very well during the pandemic and the latest studies suggest that art prices have increased by an average of 16% since the start of Covid. In fact, the art market is one of the only investment vehicles that has managed to resist the downturn that has affected the financial world.

Why Has Art Not Been Affected By Covid?

The overriding reason is that the art market does not correlate with the equity markets. The factors that affect equities do not influence the art world. The property market has been directly affected by social isolation and high street banks are doing their utmost to simply stay afloat. However, as long as art physically exists and can be bought and sold then it remains unaffected by socio-economic fluctuations.

Why Is Investing In Art Safer?

Quite simply because you will own a tangible, physical asset. By investing in stocks, bonds, or ISAs you are investing in an idea or an assumption that the economy and the markets will work in your favour and gain you capital return. With art you own the asset outright and, should you wish, you can view it in person or even hang it in your own home.

What Is Predicted For The Future Of The Art Market?

Whilst nobody can predict the future, the art market has historical resilience when it comes to market crashes. During the recent 2007 financial collapse, the art market was at an all-time high and did not even start to falter until a few years later and, even at that point, there was no significant drop, just a general market plateau. We are currently nearing those highs again, according to the Mei Moses Index.

Why Shouldn’t I Just Hold On To My Capital Until The Markets Return To Their Previous Highs?

Whilst nobody would blame you for being overly cautious in the current environment, it should be noted that the value of your savings is currently dropping by the day. The current UK inflation rate is higher than any savings account that can be found from UK banks which means that holding on to your money is actually decreasing your overall net-worth and your purchasing power. This means that now is, in fact, the perfect time to make your finances work for you by investing in art.

What Security Does An Art Investment Offer?

By owning a tangible asset such as a piece of art, you have security in something physical that is not affected by news reports or market movements. Grove Square Galleries will provide certificates of ownership and a valuation so you will have all of the documents you need for insurance and security and, more importantly, peace of mind. We also offer you the option of professional storage so you can be sure that nothing untoward will ever happen to your investment.
