Art & Finance report – highlights in the art market

Art & Finance Report 2019 – 6th edition

Since launching the initiative in 2011, we have seen the global art market ebb and flow: from the aftermath of the financial crisis to the peak of the market in 2016. In parallel, we have also monitored how the wealth management sector is increasingly responding to competitive pressures in its own industry, and the role art and collectible wealth are playing in the transition to a more holistic wealth management model.

Since our last report in 2017, external factors such as increasing political and economic uncertainty, rapid technological progress, climate change, and social inequality have dominated the headlines on a daily basis. We live in a changing world, fraught with uncertainty. This is the context in which we should view the global art and finance industry—the crucial intersection between culture and wealth.

We hope that this report will help to raise awareness

New York Small Business Development Center

HOW THE NEW YORK SBDC IS RESPONDING

It is important for our centers around New York to work in ways that help keep our clients and our staff as safe as possible and not contribute to the potential spread of the virus. And, to do this while helping small businesses respond to unprecedented challenges across our local and national economies.


We’ve undertaken several steps to achieve this:

  • Working with the institutions where our centers are located to comply with new sanitation and cleaning procedures and personal contact policies.
  • Expanding our use of technology (video conferencing, file sharing, enhanced phone conferencing, etc.) to continue advising our clients. Also, many of our seminars and workshops will transition to electronic formats so we can continue to deliver important information and updates to our clients.
  • Continuing to follow the CDC’s guidelines and recommendations on steps we can take to help prevent

Blended Finance

In addition to providing commercial financing, IFC uses complementary tools to crowd in private sector financing that would otherwise not be available to projects with high development impact. One such approach is to blend concessional funds—typically from development partners—alongside IFC’s own commercial funding.

Blended finance uses relatively small amounts of concessional donor funds to mitigate specific investment risks and help rebalance risk-reward profiles of pioneering, high-impact investments so that they have the potential to become commercially viable over time.

IFC uses a disciplined and targeted approach to blended finance governance, including by following five
key blended finance principles
agreed to by development finance institutions. This strategic use of blended finance allows IFC to use the smallest
amount of concessional funding
possible to fill financing gaps in areas of strategic importance.

From fiscal year 2010 to 2019, IFC has deployed $1.2 billion of concessional donor funds to support 212 high-impact projects

These are the spiders which often land on your clothes in summer (said to bring fortune
