Ms. Annelien Bruins, Founder and Director – Bruins Private Collection Consultancy, London
Having studied Marketing and Communication in the Netherlands, Annelien Bruins moved to London in 2001 where she started working with privately-owned collections of art.
Through this unique experience, in which Ms Bruins worked with collectors, their offices and their advisors, she recognized the need for hands-on, museum-standard curatorial services.
Having completed an MA in Arts & Heritage Management (2005) Ms Bruins stays in tune with current best practice through courses and seminars. She obtained a Foundation Certificate in Art Law and a Diploma in Art Law and Ethics from the Institute of Art and Law in the United Kingdom.
She is an affiliate member of Collections Link in the United Kingdom as well as a member of the Association of Professional Art Advisors in the United States.
Established in 2007, London-based Bruins Private Collections Consultancy assists an international clientele and their family offices, wealth managers and art advisors as well as corporates, art funds and insurance companies in the day-to-day and long term management of their collections.
We achieve this through working with an international network of specialists and museum-quality service providers. Looking after one of the largest privately-owned collections of art and antiques worldwide, BPCC developed Art Asset Management, a concept imperative to maintaining the value and condition of irreplaceable, valuable works of art, antiques and jewellery - whether purchased for enjoyment or investment. BPCC prides itself on its transparency, objectivity and discretion.
In addition to BPCC's dedication to providing the highest level of service possible to its clients, we also strive to educate new collectors on the ins and outs of the art market as well as practical issues that occur when collecting. More information can be found on www.bruins-pcc.com.
