Winter 2020 Newsletter Since our last newsletter, we have looked at online sales at auction and alternatives to them (the private market is such an obvious boon); also planning matters given the proposed changes to taxation and the heritage regime.

This unprecedented time of uncertainty and market volatility has affected nearly every industry, including the art world.

For the third year running Cochrane Adams Fine Art Agents was involved in the The Family Balance Sheet Event, virtually hosted by Stanhope Capital at KPMG, London.

We were in Guernsey in early 2019 presenting to a packed house of Trustees and those with a fiduciary fund on the need for independent art advice. We looked at: guarantees at auction; private sales; risks and rewards of different sale options and buying and collection management for clients.
