Our Values

At Art Axcess, we are dedicated to providing outstanding art advisory services with a strong ethical foundation. Our company's culture and ethos are built on six core values that guide our every decision and interaction with our clients. These values ensure our commitment to transparency, legal compliance, client interests, and conflict-free services.

Transparency and client prioritization.

We believe in being completely open with our clients about our compensation structure, ensuring we always prioritize their interests. Our clear and upfront approach allows clients to trust us and be confident in our recommendations to help them build their art collections.
We provide detailed reports to our clients, outlining the rationale behind each suggested acquisition, the market trends, and the process to ensure they understand our approach to curating their collection.


No inventory, consignment or private dealing.

At Art Axcess, we do not keep any inventory for sale, offer artwork on consignment, or engage in private dealing in any transaction. This enables us to provide unbiased advice to our clients that is solely based on enhancing their collection, and not influenced by sales targets or personal gain.
When offering an advisory service to a client, we conscientiously provide them with a wide range of artwork options from various sources so they can make an informed choice that best fits their personal aesthetics and preferences.


Legal compliance and tax laws.

We strictly adhere to all state and federal legal practices and tax laws. Our clients can have peace of mind knowing that their transactions and investments are conducted ethically and in full compliance with the law.
Our team stays updated with the latest tax laws and regulatory requirements, enabling our clients to navigate the complexities of art investing in a legally compliant manner.


Thorough acquisition research.

To ensure the legitimacy of all the artworks we recommend, we conduct extensive research into their history, providence, and authentication. This diligent approach helps safeguard our clients’ investments and maintain the integrity of their collection. When advising a client on a potential acquisition, our research includes examining auction records, provenance history, and collaborating with experts to authenticate the artworks.


Responsible services.

We are dedicated to avoiding any services that could potentially harm or go against the best interests of our clients. Our professional responsibility is to protect and enhance our clients’ collections, and we consistently strive to act in their favor.
When evaluating potential artwork acquisitions, we conduct a risk-benefit analysis to ensure that we only provide recommendations that align with our clients’ objectives.


Building relationships without conflicts of interest.

At Art Axcess, we are committed to ensuring that there are no conflicts of interest between us and our clients. We do not accept financial compensation that could create a potential conflict, allowing us to always provide objective, client-focused advice.
We never engage in transactions where we have a vested interest or personal connection with the artwork or seller, maintaining our independence to serve our clients’ needs.
