Francesco Gibbi is a seasoned art collector and expert in 18th century Neoclassical etchings. In 2015, understanding the wide investment opportunities offered by the art auction market but as well the need for more transparency and efficiency for the art buyers, he founded the online portal for Worldwide Auctioning " Lot-Art.com " to enhance the role of fine art investment as an effective portfolio diversification to volatile financial markets.
Master Degree in International Management and specialized in International Affairs, after covering for over 15 years financial and management roles in International Organizations operating in the field of Impact Finance, Francesco is now sharing his expertise as Alternative Investment Advisor believing an investment should bring more than the opportunity of a sound financial return but as well tangible esthetic and ownership feelings to his owner.
“ Art collecting is an investment and follows similar rules to most common financial products but it is just more rewarding in terms of emotional feelings and less volatile in terms of value, especially if you well diversify your collection into contemporary art, jewelry and old masters. Leveraging on a sound expertise, auctions are the best source of good deals to any collector looking for alternative investment opportunities. ”
