Bringing your art business to Luxembourg - Creating art-related finance opportunities in Luxembourg | Deloitte solution


Art-related opportunities

Deloitte Luxembourg is actively involved in the set up of an art and finance cluster in Luxembourg as part of the diversification of the Luxembourg’s economy. One milestone project is the planned Luxembourg Freeport, a duty-free and tax-free warehouse where valuable assets such as fine wine, artworks, jewellery, precious metals, etc. can be stored in a state-of-the-art environment for an unlimited period of time. The facility is expected to open for business in Q3 2014.

In addition to the Freeport, an immense IT infrastructure underpins Luxembourg. Notable developments include the recent heavy investment in technological infrastructure, to be one of the best data centre parks in Europe, as well as the establishment of a highly favourable IP regime. With these significant developments, Luxembourg creates an attractive environment for art-related finance or business activities to develop from Luxembourg to serve Europe and more. Luxembourg is quickly becoming a strategic place for developing and implementing art-related activities such as secured lending, online businesses, advisory services, investment activities, logistic hubs for art and collectible goods, new ventures, legal and tax services, etc.
