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

Money market funds, sometimes called money funds, are a type of mutual fund developed in the 1970s as an option for investors to purchase a pool of securities that generally provided higher returns than interest-bearing bank accounts. Money market funds invest in high quality, short-term debt securities and pay dividends that generally reflect short-term interest rates. Many investors use money market funds to manage their cash and other short term funding needs.  They have since grown significantly and currently hold about $3.0 trillion in assets.

There are many kinds of money market funds, including ones that invest primarily in government securities, tax-exempt municipal securities, or corporate debt securities. Money market funds that primarily invest in corporate debt securities are referred to as prime funds. In addition, money market funds are often

Best Money Market Accounts for March 2020

Despite the many advantages of an MMA, there are a few areas where it can come up short for some. Let’s look at the other side of the coin.

Withdrawal and transfer restrictions — The Federal Reserve places limits on withdrawal and transfer activities for both savings accounts and MMAs. The Fed generally considers these account types to be vehicles for savings, after all, and actively tries to discourage too much fund-draining from them.

It does this through its Regulation D, a rule that prohibits account holders from making more than six withdrawals and/or outgoing transfers per month. Any MMA holder that exceeds that limit is subject to a penalty fee from their bank or other financial institution.

That sounds restrictive and it can be, but it only covers certain types of withdrawals/transfers. These include:

  • Electronic transfers
  • Wire transfers
  • Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers
  • Transfers by debit card
  • Transfers by

Chevron to cut 2020 capital expenditures by $4 billion, suspend share buybacks

Chevron Corp. said Tuesday it is cutting its 2020 capital spending program by $4 billion, or 20%, as it works to reduce costs in the face of declining demand due to the coronavirus outbreak and falling crude prices due to oversupply. “Given the decline in commodity prices, we are taking actions expected to preserve cash, support our balance sheet strength, lower short-term production, and preserve long-term value,” including the payment of its dividend, the company said in a statement. The company will reduce production in the Permian Basin by 20%, cut $700 million from upstream projects and exploration and $500 million from its upstream business. It will reduce its downstream and chemicals activities by $800 million. Excluding 2020 asset sales and price related contractual effects, the company expects 2020 production to be roughly flat

Best Money Market Accounts and Rates – March 2020

A money market account is a type of deposit account that pays interest on deposits and allows withdrawals with some restrictions.

MMAs are offered primarily by banks and credit unions of all sizes, and can be used for short-term or long-term savings.

Some examples of common uses are:

  • Emergency savings
  • Money you’re putting away for a large purchase, such as a car or house down payment
  • Money that’s not currently invested, but will soon be put into stocks, bonds or some other form of investment

MMAs share many features with standard savings and checking accounts. The main differences are that MMAs generally pay higher interest rates, require higher initial deposits and minimum balances, and limit the number of certain types of withdrawals and transfers.

Certificates of deposit, or CDs, also usually pay higher rates than standard savings or checking accounts. However, unlike MMAs, CDs
