UK - Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein is to sponsor and co-manage a fine art fund which aims to invest £200m in paintings and sculptures.
The assets will be accumulated over a four-year period and then “slowly and strategically” sold back into the market over six to nine years.
The minimum investment for the London-based fund is set at £180,000.
