J & A Beare Announces Formation of Global Advisory Board

The new initiative is part of a wider push for investors to purchase fine instruments as alternative-asset investments


London's J & A Beare has announced that it will form a Global Advisory Board, comprising three of the world's most prominent instrument investors — with the goal of improving the profile of fine instruments as alternative-asset investments.

The three members of the Board are Jonathan Moulds (an executive with top-level banks in both the UK and the USA), Kristian Siem (a professional in the offshore construction, shipping, and energy industries), and Winston Wong (the founder of Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp and a visiting professor at Imperial College London).

The Board's role will be to advise J & A Beare as they advocate for fine instruments to institutional investors, pension funds, HNW families, and the like.

"I am delighted to announce today the formation of our new Global Advisory Board," said Steven Smith, the Managing Director of J & A Beare. "It launches a significant new era in the 130-year history of J & A Beare and will help us reach a new class of institutional investors."

"As a company we continue to be committed to the world-leading service we offer our long-standing and prospective clients," he continued. 'We continue to strive to develop the market at all levels and I am particularly proud of our recent achievements here."‎‏‏‎ ‎

"With the largest set of historic sales data of any global dealer, spanning more than two centuries of transactions, J & A Beare has recently developed a proprietary sales index, audited by KPMG, documenting prices and financial returns of Stradivari violins," the release reads. "This index is unique to J & A Beare. These have historically outperformed the major stock indices over both the medium and long-term horizons."
