Integrity is everything with Dering. Our policy is to conduct a Fine Art Asset Financial Transaction in a professional, private, confidential, transparent and honest manner in accordance with internationally accepted business, banking, accounting and legal practices.
Dering respects each Principal Party’s wish for confidentiality, privacy and anonymity.
Dering’s goal is to manage a Fine Art Asset Financial Business Transaction that is as seamless and transparent as possible — with equal access for the Principals to all relevant Transaction Data.
Dering only works directly with Transaction Principals (Seller and Buyer), or their Attorneys, or a Principal’s “verifiable” Authorized Business Representative or “Mandate”.
Dering “does not” negotiate with Intermediary Parties or Brokers except as an “Introductory Party”.
Dering’s priority is protecting the Principal Parties, their Fine Art Assets, their Financial Assets and, the Business Transaction itself, especially where attempts of non-professional conduct and/or outside illegal activities may be a concern.
International Fine Art Resource Team.
As a consultancy, Dering maintains an International Fine Art Asset Resource Team of independent, internationally recognized, consultants, appraisers, art historians, forensic scientists, conservators, scholars & experts, who are available to assess, corroborate, evaluate or verify existing research, documents, opinions and/or marketplace data, and, as required, initiate and/or develop new research, facts, opinions & related support materials.
All independent experts associated with Dering, have the highest, verifiable, professional credentials, often providing expertise to museums, universities, governments, auction houses, international law enforcement agencies, and organizations such as the American Arbitration Association (AAA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR), and The Art Loss Register, London, UK (ALR).
All appraisals, appraisers, and their governing associations in the United States, are required to conform with The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) set forth by The Appraisal Foundation, Washington, D.C. as authorized by the U.S. Congress, and the Object ID Standards of Object Identification formulated by The Getty Information Institute.
