Art is an asset like no other, so we never treat it just like another asset.
At Facet we recognise the importance of art and that it means different things to different people and that value is relative. We treat the small premium risks with the same care and attention that we give to the ‘prestige’ accounts. To Facet, all business irrespective of size and importance matters and this is why we like to think of ourselves as one of the recognised markets for the placement of SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) business.
