The Sleeping Beauties Collection Fund

Ancient Art as an alternative investment strategy

Overview

The market related to Greek vases has existed for centuries. It represents a well-known and mature sector of the ancient art market with an established and unique historical value protected from the fluctuations of volatile and unpredictable ones such as contemporary art.

During the investment period, the Fund will acquire up to 50 Greek vases.

The pre-acquisition vetting and legal review of potential Investments by the Team of Experts is intended to ensure the quality and marketability of the Fund’s investments. This process will add significant value to the investments.

The Ancient western art market represents between USD 300 MM – USD 500 MM per year with transactions of about 4’000 pieces a year. Auction sales represent approximately USD 100 MM of this total.
