"Art is often seen as a store of value, but actually any art-seller would tell you that ahead of a sale they never know if they will be able to obtain the price they want for an artwork or if they will be able to sell the artwork at all."
Etienne Verbist, an authority in the field of crowd sourcing, disruptive business modelling and disruptive art, as well as a columnist for ArtDependence Magazine spoke with Christine Bourron, Founder & CEO Pi-eX Ltd, a London-based broker dealer that helps art collectors and investors better manage liquidity, risk and volatility by providing analytical and financial tools especially designed for the fine-art market.
