The Untapped Collaboration – How Business and Art Appraisers Can Work Together

As prices for fine art have drastically risen over the past decade, collectors have increasingly begun to treat the art on their walls as alternative assets. Specialist personal property appraisal firm O’Toole-Ewald Art Associates, Inc. (OTE) has found itself at the crossroads of art and finance, being regularly called upon by business appraisers, bankers, financial managers, estate planning attorneys, and accountants seeking guidance for clients with $100 million+ collections. Our business has evolved far beyond classic appraisals to include specialized services requiring complex and often unprecedented analysis.

 While the art world continues to grow more sophisticated, now comes the time to explore mutual strides forward by professional appraisers in the personal property and business sectors. OTE’s presentation will discuss common interdisciplinary valuation services and open the dialogue for future opportunities.
