dc.description.abstract Studies forms and performance of selected hard assets or alternative investments, focusing on works of art in general, and in particular modern and contemporary prints. Today, the investor/collector is barraged with a plethora of opportunities to hedge his investment against. The purpose of this research is to construct, measure, evaluate and compare different investment opportunities, concentrating on modern and contemporary prints in the field of art. An ancillary aim is to provide a microcosm for the private investor/collector when investing in works of art, by discussing the art market, the risk inherent in works of art, and the characteristics of art as an investment. The data in the study were ascertained through fifteen personal interviews with experts in their particular fields. A study of books and periodicals provides further information regarding the background and evaluation of hard assets as a form of investment. There still exists enormous potential for the use of hard assets as a hedge against inflation, but they are not always inflation proof, and the investor/collector must beware of the many pitfalls. The art market in particular offers an attractive, interesting and rewarding home for part of a diversified investment portfolio. en
