Few people can be said to have successfully launched a new category of capital investment. Mr. Lumbreras is one of those few who can put forth such a claim. His rich background in art and finance hails from a lineage of art collectors that started in Spain in 1883. He has served as consultant to selected private collectors, guest lecturer at museums, universities, banks and at leading media groups, and as trustee to international art institutions. Additionally, he is Chairman of the Board of Directors of The Art Fund Association, New York. With a reputation as a pioneer in the field, he is a reliable and respected speaker in matters pertaining to art collecting at large, art as an asset class and art securitization, including portfolio management and estate planning. Among other venues, Mr. Lumbreras has been a speaker at the Alternative Investment Association, the Sotheby’s Institute in London, the Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning, the Art Investment Forum, and at Deloitte’s Art & Finance conferences. Mr. Lumbreras is the author of the book The Art of Collecting Art. He is also a skilled and determined art collector in his own right. He founded The Adrastus Collection of contemporary art, the base for a national museum set in Árevalo, Spain.
