Pall Mall Art Advisors was established in 2010 to meet the challenges thrown up by a changing market for services in relation to the collection of fine art and other valuables. This aim has seen the company adopt many innovative approaches, resulting in the provision of exceptional services as clients engage with the global art market.
Our combined knowledge and experience enables us to help you negotiate the global art market. Buying or selling with Pall Mall Art Advisors means you can avoid the common obstacles faced in incorporating art and collectables into wealth management.
Where traditionally auction houses and dealers would undertake valuations, we recognise the need for an independent approach and a higher level of personal service in today’s increasingly complex valuation market.
Many of our clients lead a busy life, with all too little time to manage their collections. Pall Mall Art Advisors can provide overall curatorial support and ensure that clients can have full confidence that their collections are being managed economically and efficiently.
From purchase to protection, our considerable knowledge and experience enables us to provide guidance to insurance brokers, law firms, banks, accountants, wealth managers, institutions and private customers.
Operating in Europe, the United States and beyond, Pall Mall Art Advisors is supported by an outstanding team of hugely experienced specialists. We keep abreast of market trends to ensure clients receive the best current advice.
