Hottinger Group, a multi-family office headquartered in London, has launched art consultancy services to support clients in managing their art collections.
The proposition is aimed at facilitating collection management and logistics, philanthropy, art lending, authentication and valuation, as well as artworks sale.
Through the new offering, the firm will also offer structuring and estate planning to enable inter-generational collection transfer.
The services will be provided through Hottinger Art, set up by Melanie Damani who moved to the firm last year.
Prior to joining Hottinger, Damani led Art Advisory at Edmond de Rothschild Group.
She previously also served as an associate lawyer within the wealth management group of Baker & Mckenzie in Zurich.

Hottinger Group CEO Mark Robertson said: “Through Hottinger Art, we ensure we have the capability in-house to deliver the independent and shrewd advice that our clients need to navigate the art world.
“Art investment can evoke passionate responses and tap into personal preferences in a way that investments in stocks and bonds seldom manage, but it’s not without its challenges.
“To do it well ideally needs expertise in the appreciation of aesthetics and a thorough understanding of legal issues, both of which Melanie is able to offer our clients in abundance.”
