"Fine Art favours Due Diligence" ™
The art market can be quite complex and is unregulated for the most part; therefore, it is crucial to get the right advice when considering buying or investing in art. It has many fakes and for the unsuspecting collector or investor and it is wise to take precautions. A simple question will sum this up. Would you buy a Private Jet, a yacht or Property without conducting due diligence or getting reports from the respective experts? The art-world is no different, get the right advice and minimise the risks as you would do with any other asset.
As Art Advisors, we represent the Clients interests and not our own and always give unbiased advice. We are entirely independent of art dealers and galleries and not affiliated to any auction house. As Art Due Diligence specialists, we research and obtain as much information as possible about an art transaction, the artwork that is under consideration and the buyer or seller. This also includes due diligence on issues such as provenance and attribution, historical analyses, forensic examination, price research, collection management, insurance, storage, free ports, insurance, transportation, and so on.
DOMOS are the creators of "The PAM Test" initiative. This is a comprehensive checklist that enhances our ability to assess potential transactions when clients are buying or investing in fine art. Applying the PAM Test involves Investigating the People the Art and the Money on all art deals. The checklists are crucial for the in-depth due diligence process on art transactions, so any risks associated with buying or investing and in fine art can be minimised.

"It is imperative that the client understand that an "Art Adviser" works for the client and have a duty of care to you only. However, many Art Dealers, Art Galleries and Auction Houses have no such obligation and have to sell you their inventory. An art adviser should always double-check everything to ensure you are getting the right art at the right price and art that has no issues." Ty Murphy, Art Specialist
