"The challenges of recent years have massively changed our market, accelerated it, made it more digital. Although the art and antiques trade and galleries are a free trade, we are subject to strict "industry rules". Especially in recent years, some regulators from EU level have strongly impacted our business (e.g. on copyright protection, money laundering, restrictions on ivory trade, and many more).

This, the digitization necessities and the sales slumps of the last two and a half years, demand more flexibility and an adaptation to the trends of the time. The market has been massively accelerated, trade fairs have become highly successful digitally and auctions are achieving record sales time after time. All of which necessitates the transformation of companies in the market.

Our strong personal contact with customers*, consulting expertise and an increasingly international network - also increasingly via digital channels, brings many opportunities."
