Asset Services, REYL Intesa Sanpaolo’s business division in charge of its institutional client base, will serve as a payment agent for ARTEX, a Liechtenstein-based multilateral trading facility that focuses on art-related investments.

Established by Yassir Benjelloun-Touimi and Prince Wenceslas of Liechtenstein, ARTEX seeks to establish an ecosystem centered around art, encompassing investment and piece visibility.

Millions of investors are able to use a new asset class that this financial model prepares the way for through exchange listings and the division of artwork prices into shares with an issue price starting at €100 ($106).

Moreover, in January 2023, ARTEX received permission from the Financial Authority of Liechtenstein (FMA) to function as an art share exchange within a set of rules.

They completed their first effective transaction in March 2024 with a vehicle named Art Share 002, which is currently the owner of a triptych valued at an estimated 55 million US dollars, painted by figurative painter Francis Bacon (1909–1992).

Through its Asset Services division, REYL Intesa Sanpaolo has provided customers with a full paying agent service since 2018.
