The second edition of ‘Point of View’ titled ‘Raising Capital Against High Value Works of Art’ was informed by mounting global interest in art from the continent and a steady growth of the collectors’ base within Africa and especially in Nigeria. It sought to encourage the growing recognition of Nigerian art as a new alternative asset class while providing a deeper understanding of the appraising of art holdings for liquidation, and of using art as collateral for lending transactions such as financing business expansions and investments or high-end purchases. It also aimed to support the development of art investment products, as well as the diversification of investment portfolios with the integration of art.
