Our Approach

At Bank of America Private Bank, we offer extensive art services. We provide solutions for collectors and institutions while helping to navigate the complex art world. For individuals, we help collectors unlock capital via Bank of America by lending against collections when certain criteria are met. We also help design estate plan options to address tax and other implications of a collection, and help collectors prepare for a sale via consignment services. For institutions, we provide nonprofit advisory services, including endowment management and institutional investment management ranging from a collaborative model to a complete Outsourced Chief Investment Officer(OCIO) option.

Whatever your specific goals are for your collection, our range of capabilities, along with our commitment to the arts, can help us deliver a broad combination of services while considering the legacy and potential of your collection as part of your overall financial goals.
