Launched a service to facilitate short term loans

Levart allows art collectors to use their artwork as collateral for short term loans.

Art can be very valuable, but it is an illiquid asset. The process of selling art and receiving cash can be a complicated and time consuming process.

Levart removes this barrier by providing a simple application process that allows collectors to take out short terms loans against their collection.
