Tangibles and personal property are no longer considered objects with which we live. They can be a significant portion of a client’s financial portfolio. As such, fiduciaries have a responsibility to consider these assets when planning for an Estate or Trust. These markets, like any financial market, have their ups and downs.

This talk with focus on some recent highlights in the International Art Market. Ms.Nagy will use examples from recent sales to show how these trends have affected the value of objects held by collectors from the Mid-Atlantic region.
