The 12th Art & Finance Conference was held in Monaco

Jean Castellini, Government Counselor – Minister for Finance and Economy, opened the Art & Finance Conference 2019, organized by Deloitte, which chose the Principality to host the 12th edition.

According to Jean Castellini, “there is no better place in the world to approach this theme than Monaco, where artists live and thrive, where collectors possess exceptional works of art, where private bankers have the expertise to advise very demanding clients in the management and diversification of their assets.”

“Today, art has become a real market, and the interaction between artists, collectors, investors, auction houses, and new technologies is the key to success,” he said in the preamble to this conference dedicated to the emerging art industry.

In front of 350 participants from 28 countries, international experts and local actors tackled different topics such as the art collection in the era of greater transparency, the art of yachts, the evolution of the market of the art on the horizon 2030, technology at the service of art or the impact of virtual reality on private museums.
