‘Evolution of the Art Market’


US Trust hosted “Evolution of the Art Market” at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club March 9 featuring Evan Beard, National Art Services Executive with the private wealth management firm.

Beard took eight paintings to explain the current state of the global art market and considerations for the modern day collector. The topic that generated the most interest was the rise of art as a capital asset and the rapid growth of art-secured lending. Attendees were surprised to learn that collectors across the country can unlock capital from their art to invest in their business, real estate or hedge fund, all while keeping their art on the wall.

The evening was the first in a series of gatherings planned by Sean T. Anthony at US Trust. For more information or to be placed on the invitation list for future events, please email
