W8 Advisory

In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we’re joined by Bimpe Nkontchou, founder & managing principal of W8 Advisory, a multi-family office and wealth management practice, based in London, focused on high net worth African families. First, we ask Bimpe why there is suddenly increased focus on the contemporary African art scene. Then, she tells us if African high net worth families are viewing contemporary African art as an alternative asset class. Also, Bimpe shares if Africans are beginning to collect art in response to the increased popularity of contemporary African art. Additionally, she explains how vital art patronage is to the African art community as well as the important role established African artists are playing to ensure that emerging artists can develop their practices and careers.
