The Australian Art Market Report, Issue 25, Spring 2007, Page 22, Cents and sensibility:

“If someone is prepared to spend a considerable budget on an artwork, it is just
common sense to do one’s homework and make an informed decision”, explains
David Hulme, of Bänziger Hulme Fine Art.”…. But the purported boom isn’t as
straightforward as collectors might like. Bänziger Hulme may serve as art brokers,
buying and selling works on their client’s behalf   through the secondary market,
however they believe “that art as investment has been hyped” and “if one is
primarily and purely interested in (turning a profit), we feel it is better to stick
with traditional investment vehicles.”
