He views fine and decorative art and collectibles as an asset class with characteristics distinct from traditional asset classes, such as real estate and securities. Art assets can suffer from infirmities in title, authenticity, attribution and regulatory compliance, due to the subjective judgment of experts and lack of documentation. This appreciation, confirmed over decades of experience in the art market, gives PML a superior analytical framework for transactional documentation, disputes and litigation.
