Javier Lumbreras, CEO & Founder
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 trustee, member of the International Council and chairperson to the executive committee and acquisitions board of various international art institutions.
In addition, he serves as the chairman of the board of directors of The Art Fund Association in New York and frequently lectures at museums, universities, banks, and at leading media groups. With a reputation as a pioneer in the field, he is a reliable and respected speaker in matters pertaining to art collecting in general, art as an asset class and art securitization, as well as portfolio management, museum endowments 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 Adrastus Collection the base for COLLEGIUM, a museum to be situated in Arévalo, Spain.
