Best sites for investing in modern Chinese art:

artvest.com

Modern Chinese art has emerged as an exciting alternative asset class. The art market is complex, opaque and unregulated, making it hard for investors to choose good value work. Objective advice is important. Although Artvest is an independent advisory firm, its site offers news, analysis and market commentary aimed at investors rather than collectors. The advisers introduce discipline to buying art and attempt to track price performance and trading liquidity of individual pieces.

arttactic.com

With expert and in-depth research that can be tailored to improve an experienced collector's art portfolio's returns, ArtTactic also uses analytical frameworks used by economists and financial analysts. This site gives insights into how the art market works. A free podcast section covers United States, European and emerging market investing. An education board informs visitors about courses. Research and analysis broadly covers sectors, markets and artists.

skatesartinvestment.com

Investors seeking a more engaging, forum-style of interaction will find this site appealing. The site does not make money from buying or selling art. It provides commentary on auctions and events to get the art community to discuss art as an investment. It also publishes an annual Chinese art market survey and research report that recommends top Chinese art investment ideas. Emerging Chinese artists and works are also discussed.
