Over the past ten years, classic cars, fine art, wine, and other passion assets have appreciated significantly in value. In addition, acquiring the pieces as an investable asset, many clients buy art and collectables because they are passionate collectors. A client needs to have knowledge about their acquisitions and their corresponding markets to maximize profit and to minimize taxation. When presented with a collection of passion assets such as art, classic cars, wine, jewelry, and other valuable collectibles, a financial, risk or legal advisor can face challenges when determining whether it constitutes an investment grade significant asset or is merely a decorative acquisition, but not an essential part of their overall portfolio.
