Business Finance for Art And Antique Dealers

We focus on arranging finance for your business
So you can focus on running your art or antiques business

Every business needs finance. Art and antique dealers are no exception. Whether starting out, expanding your business or taking on a whole new challenge, ASC are here to make getting that finance simple for you.

If you’re running a gallery or dealership, you’re operating a very different business to many. Instead of your standard retail business, you’re offering a bespoke service that works in very different ways to the norm. This means that the challenges you face are different to the norm to. But we’re here to make sure that finance isn’t one of those challenges, no matter your situation.

Just like artwork, finance is bespoke.

Art and antique dealers are most definitely one of the most unique businesses one can find. Rather than the standard, repetitive offering that most businesses survive on, at a dealership you’re dealing with one-of-a-kind, often expensive, antiques or art pieces. You aren’t just selling them to anyone and everyone – you’re selling them to people who are looking for a specific product that best suits exactly what they’re looking for. This applies to your search for finance as well. It’s not just a catch-all process, it’s a bespoke, tailored search. Every business will have its own search for finance – everything about your business can affect your journey. An art gallery and a sculpture gallery will have very different income streams, and very different things to put in front of lenders. We’ll help you through the finance process, so you can always be sure that you’re putting your best foot forward.

You’ll then have to consider what type of finance works best for you. Every dealership will have different priorities, and that affects their finance needs. A specialist dealer for antique furniture, for example, might not get the biggest benefit from a standard commercial loan. An art gallery, though, might find that a mortgage would be the best option for them. So when you look for finance, you need someone that knows your world, and how to find what’s right for you.

ASC will find the deal you need.
