Safe haven investments: Why the Art market could hold the answer

The buoyant art market offers safe haven investments for savvy investors' portfolios

Safe haven investments.

In these days of economic uncertainty it's easy to understand why investors are so intent on finding safe havens for their money.

It's why more and more investors are diversifying into the hugely enjoyable art sector, where the joy of collecting can be matched by the pleasure of profit.

The statistics tell the story.

The Mei Moses Global Art Index, which monitors auction prices of collectible art around the world, has witnessed an 11.8% rise in prices during the first 11 months of 2011.

Nowhere has this been more keenly felt than in Asia, where the market for art has been boosted by the country's growing prosperity and increasing number of millionaires.

Dong Guoqiang, president of Beijing Council International Auction Co, told the China Daily publication this week: "Now we are facing not only the traditional collector, who sees the value of items in terms of art and culture, but also the investors with a huge amount of capital who have taken to art as a way of increasing their fortunes."

With such an influx of investors to the market, we expect prices to surge for the most collectible artworks and artists over the coming years.

Investing in the art market now is vital, before prices have the chance to rise. Click here to learn more about why the art market is set to soar.

Salvador Dali is an artist whose popularity among collectors is on the up.

Earlier this year his Portrait de Paul Eluard sold for 13.48m ($20.94m) at Sotheby's - a record for Dali.

We have a superb original sketch by the Spanish surrealist available for you today. Thought to be of his wife and muse, Gala, it can be yours for just 18,000 (approx. $28,000).
