Thursday, 26 January 2017 | 14:00 – 17:30

Issues linked to lack of transparency and authenticity are undermining trust and credibility in the art market. At the same time the legal and regulatory framework within which art businesses are required to operate is evolving and becoming increasingly complex.
The Responsible Art Market Initiative (RAM) has been formed in response to these developments. RAM’s mission is: “To raise awareness amongst Art Businesses of risks faced by the art industry and provide practical guidance on establishing and implementing responsible practices to address those risks.”
Join us to celebrate the launch of this important and exciting initiative and the publication of RAM’s Guidelines for Countering Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Threats, the first in a series of guidelines for art market practitioners.
