Integrity is everything. Dering conducts Fine Art Asset Financial Transactions in a professional, private, confidential, transparent and honest manner in accordance with internationally accepted business, banking and legal practices.
Dering respects each Principal’s confidentiality, privacy and anonymity.
Dering’s goal is to manage a Fine Art Asset Financial Business Transaction as seamlessly and transparently as possible — with equal access for Principals to all relevant transaction data.
Dering only works directly with Transaction Principals (Seller and Buyer), their Attorneys, or a Principal’s “verifiable” Authorized Business Representative (“Mandate”).
Dering does not negotiate with Intermediary Parties or Brokers except as a “Referral Party”.
Dering’s priority is protecting the Principal Parties, their Fine Art Assets, their Financial Assets, the Business Transaction itself, especially if attempts of non-professional conduct or outside illegal activities may be a concern.
International Fine Art Resource Team.
As a consultancy, Dering maintains an International Fine Art Resource Team of independent, internationally recognized, consultants, appraisers, art historians, forensic scientists, conservators, scholars and experts, who are available to assess, corroborate, evaluate, initiate or develop new research, facts, opinions and support materials.
All independent experts associated with Dering, have the highest, professional credentials, often providing expertise to international museums, universities, governments, auction houses, 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 (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.
