AXA ART Enters into Relationship with Collectrium to make the Powerful Digital Collection Management Platform available to International Art Collector Clients and Business Partners

AXA ART announced that following a robust industry evaluation, it has entered into a relationship with Collectrium. The newly developed partnership will provide AXA ART’s global clients and business partners with access to the industry’s most secure, powerful, comprehensive digital platform for organizing, visualizing, and reporting on the critical data and activities behind owning and managing high value art and collectibles. From fine art to collectible cars, jewellery, wine and more, AXA ART insures objects in every active area of serious collecting. The specialist insurer cited Collectrium’s deep focus on the security and privacy of clients’ confidential information, as well as the fast-paced product innovation, as reasons for collaborating with the digital platform.

Collectrium enables AXA ART clients to:

  • manage confidential art collection data with banking-industry standards of security, backups and encryption to ensure absolute privacy;
  • upload images and accompanying information for an unlimited number of art and collectible objects;
  • securely access collection details, analytics, and reports from any desktop or any mobile device, even when offline;
  • benchmark their collections against the market, thanks to comprehensive database of over 6 million auction sales results from across more than 1,500 auction houses;
  • manage global collections in multiple languages and multiple currencies.

As part of its planned global rollout, AXA ART will offer Collectrium access to select clients in the first year of the partnership. During the second phase, additional clients will be offered the opportunity to use Collectrium. Continued access to the platform will be offered to both groups at a preferred subscription rate.

“Our clients’ expectations are changing: They operate in global markets and today expect on-demand and one-stop solutions” commented Kai Kuklinski, Global CEO of AXA ART. “We find Collectrium is an ideal partner with its wide-ranging features, commitment to data privacy and security, and its capability to provide services digitally to our clients, wherever they are in the world.”

“Insurance companies today face consumers who are seeking more comprehensive, personalized services delivered anywhere in the world, anytime,” Boris Pevzner, CEO of Collectrium, noted. “We are pleased that AXA ART has placed confidence in a partnership with Collectrium to support its clients as they navigate the complexities of the art market.”

AXA ART’s digital partnership with Collectrium is driven by the fine art insurer’s aim – to achieve customer satisfaction and to offer secure online products and services within a new digital economy.
