As part of The Wall Street Journal Webinar Series and in association with Premiere Performances of Hong Kong, Steven Smith, Managing Director of J & A Beare, offers an insight into why fine instruments have proved such a strong and stable investment for many decades.
During the webinar, Steven talks about the rare string instruments made in the 17th and 18th centuries by Stradivari, Guarneri del Gesù and many other Italian master luthiers as well as their histories, prices and investment returns.
He also illustrates the philanthropic benefits of owning fine antique instruments and lending them to talented young musicians through the Beare’s International Violin Society.
With a testimonial from distinguished Society patron, Irene Miller, Steven is also joined by Jonathan Moulds CBE, and together they discuss the latest investment trends of this alternative market.
