PWM Art Advisory & Valuation

In partnership with

Doerr Valuations offers independent advice, appraisal and valuation services in connection with acquiring, insuring, dividing and disposing of works of art, antiques, jewellery and other valuable items.

Valuations are provided for insurance, tax purposes, succession, family division, trust and philanthropic purposes. Our Valuations by experts can often add to the client’s knowledge of items they own. In a large property or where the client owns several properties, the Valuation can be a useful guide as to an item’s exact location. With 75% of household contents usually found to be undervalued for insurance, it is worth emphasising that claims can often result in financial loss where values have not been updated. It is the duty of the owner, not the insurance company or broker, to ensure that items are correctly valued.

Accurate Valuations can provide:

  • Realistic values for insurance
  • Access to discounts offered by insurers for up to date information
  • Help with estate planning and family division
  • A priority for items for rescue in a disaster plan
  • Assistance with overall asset management where values are changing
  • Information  for use as collateral for loans where institutions are happy to lend on such assets.

Art Advisory

Even the most competent collectors enjoy comfort from a second opinion regarding issues of the best value, provenance and authentication. Doerr Valuations can help with the acquisition process and negotiate favourably on your behalf with auction houses, galleries or private treaty sales.
