London, UK (6th October, 2011): Ahead of this year's Frieze Art Fair Hiscox estimates that the total value of art on show will be USD 350million. Robert Read, fine art expert at specialist art insurer Hiscox, comments:

"The wealthy are hoarding cash as the world's developed economies lurch from one crisis to another. It will be interesting to see if they will be tempted, at Frieze, to buy the cutting edge contemporary art on offer - in what has been and continues to be the most volatile and speculative sector of the art market."

Recent Hiscox estimates:

  • Frieze 2010 - USD 375 million
  • Maastricht 2011 - USD 3.2 billion
  • Basel 2011 - USD 1.75 billion
