Archival Property Solutions, LLC documents and catalogs the tangible assets of high-net-worth owners for their personal viewing pleasure, real-time collaboration with family and professional advisors, and support of crucial Family Office and wealth management activities.
These assets, wherever they are located, may include, but are not limited to, fine art, valuable collections, jewelry, gems, antiques, memorabilia, and luxury items such as airplanes and yachts. We also document business and investment properties as well as residential structures, their landscapes, and their daily use contents, including amenities, furniture, décor, fixtures, finishes, and other architectural details.
Clients who have substantial and complex holdings in multiple locations can now keep their catalog of tangible assets current, organized and stored securely for private, confidential access. They can then enjoy a virtual tour of places, possessions and memorable special occasions via computer, tablet or phone alone or with family members in distant locations. Even if valued items are no longer in the owner’s possession, they still can be appreciated and remembered for historical and nostalgic reasons.
This private, secure catalog of images and information can serve as a valuable resource for Family Office activities and a wide range of services including estate planning, tax strategy, wealth management and personal- and business-related legal work. It can also help clients assess whether their insurance coverage is suitable should their possessions be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.
Owners can access this custom catalog of non-financial assets—including scans of confidential documents and data—for convenient reference or collaborating with trusted advisors. When maintained with current information, this documentation can keep owner-authorized users (e.g., insurance providers, other advisors and Family Offices) updated and informed, enabling them to better support their client relationships.
This documentation process can also be used by museums and governments to gather and organize information about valuable collections and other items of important cultural and national historic value. Then, if a natural disaster, fire, theft, riot or act of war results in damage or loss, at least the digital records of those tangible assets will remain intact to support recovery, restoration and reimbursement efforts.
When a particular asset has already been documented by a more specialized service, we simply refer to that report by noting the data record storage location or website URL in the digital catalog that we prepare. Or, if the client prefers, we can gather the data ourselves and collaborate with other vendors to create specialized reports.
Please note that Archival Property Solutions does not provide any service regarding money. We do not store or manage any original assets or documents, or advise clients on any topic. All descriptions and formal appraisals are supplied by the property owner. However, traveling to client locations to gather, organize and document relevant images and data under the client’s direction is a core feature of our service.
Digitally cataloging these tangible assets helps high-net-worth owners and their professional advisors plan for, protect against, cope with and recover from life’s unexpected events. This digital library can also serve as a virtual living will by providing family members, advisors and caregivers with critical data in the event of the owner’s mental or physical incapacitation.
With so much at stake, compiling such a digital catalog is best left to experienced and trustworthy professionals. The end result is enhanced when the process is managed by people who have broad experience with property categories and asset classes, and the network reach to refer owners to experienced appraisers and other uniquely qualified professionals when appropriate.
