Profile

Philip Hoffman

Description

After 12 years as Christie’s finance director, Philip Hoffman launched the Fine Art Group in 2001. Noting the need for investment- focused approaches to the art market, the firm was the first to establish a $25 million ‘art hedge fund’, which later morphed into six successive funds.

The group has grown from handling $20 million to over a quarter of a billion, growing to offer advisory and art finance with team members in 25 countries. ‘We are the merchant bank of the art world,’ Hoffman says. Covering a broad spectrum of services – and with a billion dollars passing through its books – it delivers innovative proposals to clients to provide liquidity, profits and advice.
