Step by step
You inform your Private Banker you are interested in arts.
Your Private Banker will liaise with an Art Banker from Societe Generale Private Banking, who will select partners best matching your requirements.
No, on the contrary, our offer is aimed at a wide range of clients: some wish to be accompanied for a first acquisition or the building of a collection, others for the evaluation of one or more objects with a view to a sale, or for the insurance or transmission of a collection, or even for a philanthropic project in the world of the arts.
Even though we have experienced and knowledgeable people within our organisation SG Kleinwort Hambros' ambition is not to become an art "expert". In this field, the real expertise is in the hands of professional partners from the art world, who have experience, specialisation and irreplaceable infrastructures, difficult to duplicate within a bank. We believe that it makes more sense to mobilise hand-picked experts from the art world in order to accompany each client appropriately.
