Collecting Fine Art

A fine art collection holds both aesthetic as well as economic value, and can play an important role in helping you pursue your wealth planning and philanthropic goals. Care and management of this asset requires the knowledge of qualified specialists to help you make informed choices that fit into your overall wealth management strategy.

U.S. Trust is a leader in fine art lending, with specialists who understand credit and the art market. We lend against art for a wide range of purposes and work with a network of appraisers, auction houses and other art experts to simplify the lending process.

In addition, our wealth strategists understand both the emotional and financial impacts associated with fine art wealth transfer. They have extensive experience helping clients evaluate the various wealth transfer options available, from gifting artwork to a family member or friend, to donating it to a museum, to even starting a museum with an existing collection.


Contact your advisor, or have us contact you, to understand how to leverage your collection now, while also helping plan for the future.
