Who Is Quartet?

Who is Quartet?

As the name suggests, we are a team of four individuals, each with our own area of professional expertise within the luxury asset markets and teamed together having worked on various joint transactions over several years.

Located in the UK and Palma de Mallorca, Quartet FO was formed after many of our individual clients were growing frustrated at the transparency of the process chain and structure of certain transactions.

By combining our knowledge and talents of various markets into a more efficient value proposition, we are able to offer a unique, simplified and, above all, a completely honest approach within the Family Office world.

We work closely with our clients as their trusted advisors and consultants in the sourcing and validity of valuable investment assets. Through working with us you are assured of having a reliable business partner who is experienced in the sourcing, transacting and delivery of a wide variety of assets including fine art, blue chip classic cars and supercars, prestigious property, yachts and rare collectables.

We recognise the urgency and confidentiality of buying desirable objects which is why our new clients are often referred to us by our existing client base. They like clarity, crystal clarity.

  • Lack of transparency concerning a potential deal, thus delaying the process
  • Involvement with many intermediaries and no clear way of delivering which often results in buyers walking away

Transaction Process

Transaction Process

Transaction Process Luxury asset lending brings together our trusted experts in valuation from across the globe. Quartet’s appraisal process includes the arrangement of an evaluation of the asset and a thorough review of each asset to assess authenticity, value, and ownership. Appraisals can be conducted at the location of the asset, or one of our locations.

Our process empowers clients to unlock the true value of their luxury assets, allowing clients to capitalize on the liquidity of their luxury assets and without the hassle of private sales or auction.

For preliminary asset evaluation an appraisal is scheduled, a logistics plan is created, the underwriting process commences and a transaction is mapped out. Once the transaction details are agreed upon, documented and signed, the asset is secured and funds are transferred.

Upon loan execution, we take possession of the client’s asset, store the asset, or become a lienholder on title of the asset. All assets we take possession of are stored in highly secure locations and our clients have the confidence of insurance and exceptional care in the handling of their luxury assets.
