Art and collectables as an asset class
With a background in art and finance, there’s no one better placed than Mariane to discuss art as an investment. She is UK Managing Director at Arteïa and the founder of The Cornelius Arts Foundation, a charity committed to understanding (and expanding) the transformative power of art.
Jeremy Green is the UK Team Head of Agreus, a specialist recruiter and advisor for Family Offices globally. He started life in the city as an FX Broker back in the days before the Euro existed, when trades were conducted by “Open Outcry” and the phrase “My word is my bond”, truly meant something and was honoured by all. With the reduction of traded currencies and consequently the consolidation of Brokers, he took the opportunity to move into recruitment within the Private Wealth space, eventually becoming a Partner in the business. He was subsequently approached by two former colleagues who established Agreus as a specialist Family Office recruitment company and asked to join the business where he now heads up the London team.
