‘ART MEETS HEDGE FUNDS’ DINNER BY AYALTIS & CONSIGG AND CCAA’S

On Thursday, 24 March 2016, members of The Reserve were among the fortunate guests in attendance at a private dinner event with Dr. Uli Sigg, the Swiss businessman, diplomat and art collector who in 2012 donated the bulk of his Chinese art collection to M+. At the time, the 1,510 pieces, including 47 works that the museum bought separately, were appraised at over US$167 million, a value that will have no doubt risen in the four years since.
