Leveraging Your Art Collection

At U.S. Trust, our specialists can help you identify the equity in your fine art collection and build a borrowing strategy to help meet timely objectives.

Borrowing against the value of your art and reinvesting the loan proceeds to fulfill other financial goals can be an effective way to generate cash from an otherwise static asset. Most important, when you work with U.S. Trust, you keep your fine art collection on display in your home or other venue while it is being used as collateral. You might consider using your collection to gain liquidity for:

  • Acquiring additional artwork
  • Financing business goals
  • Taking advantage of other timely investment opportunities.

"You can borrow against your art collection for cash or equity to pursue other financial needs, from buying additional artwork to financing business goals."
John Arena, Senior Credit Executive


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