How we work

It will be our pleasure to meet you for an initial discussion about your interests in art. After ascertaining your requirements, we will present a proposal setting out key deliverables, agreed terms, and the remuneration basis for our work. We provide full transparency of the process in all matters undertaken on your behalf, and maintain the strictest standards of confidentiality with regard to your data. Whilst we work closely with selected partners, we view our independence as a vital element of our offering, ensuring that our advice is tailored only to your best interests.
