Founded in 2015, Cadell + Co is the first specialist art advisory firm to be regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority. Seeing that the emergence of art as a mature mainstream asset had not been matched by the regulatory framework, the founders saw a gap in the market because of the concern around the value of art collections.
Today, art forms a significant proportion of some high net worth individuals’ investment portfolios. Cadell focuses on preserving and enhancing the wealth tied up in art portfolios. Furthermore, their FCA approval means that trustees can have total confidence that the firm’s advice is transparent, evidence-based and independent.
Cadell delivers value at all stages of the art investment process. They offer a second opinion on proposed transactions and have procedures to maximise success when it comes to selling. In a short time, Cadell has built a strong reputation in a sector where reputability is hard-won.
