Why We Created Partasio
We have always been fascinated by the sheer power of art. For thousands of years, it has been used by individuals to express their personal, political and societal views. Quality art expresses more than a painter’s feelings; it captures the emotions of an era and remains timeless. It is no wonder people travel all over the world to view and experience it.
Art is also a very rewarding financial investment with low correlation to traditional asset classes. However, despite its attractive financial and cultural attributes, ownership of blue-chip art remains limited to a small group of people. This is due to high barriers to entry such as high costs and the opacity of the market.
We founded Partasio with the objective to change that. As our name indicates, we strive to provide people with the opportunity to participate in art (“asio” is derived from the Latin word “occasio” which means opportunity).
Our team of experts has decades of experience in the worlds of art and finance. This gives us the insight and network to access high quality art, as well as the business acumen to analyze it. Our vision is that everyone, no matter where they live and what they do, should have the opportunity to benefit from blue-chip art’s attractive financial characteristics, to learn about its cultural relevance and to cherish its beauty.
