Investing in commodities entails significant risks. These are speculative investments and, as such, their value can be subject to declining market conditions. The value of commodities markets may fluctuate widely based on a variety of factors including but not limited to price volatility and lack of liquidity. Investing in physical commodities, such as art, exposes the investor to other risk considerations such as potentially severe price fluctuations over short periods of time; storage and insurance costs that exceed the custodial and/or brokerage costs associated with the investor’s other portfolio holdings; lack of a fundamental pricing model for art; absence of an income stream compared to other investments; challenges to authenticity and ownership; and lack of regulation.

Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC (“Morgan Stanley”) recommends that investors independently evaluate particular investments and strategies and encourages investors to seek the advice of a Morgan Stanley Financial Advisor or Private Wealth Advisor.
