According to UBS chief investment officer Mike Ryan, “an obvious appetite for art right now, especially in the ultra high net worth space,” has combined with a near-unprecedented eight-year expansion in global equity markets (currently the third-longest in history), providing the liquidity to feed that appetite. Once more, Art Basel drew in a particularly strong turnout of both established and new collectors, from over 100 countries, with especially robust attendance from Europe and Asia.
