Hollywood is no stranger to controversy, but the recent occurrences of writer strikes have brought forth a pressing need for change in the film industry. As actors and writers take to the streets in protest against film and television production companies, it has become increasingly evident that the industry must address critical issues concerning fair treatment, inclusivity, and working conditions.
Investing in art is expensive, but it has also outperformed the S&P 500 YoY for over 20 years (according to the Citi Global Art Market chart). Art is considered a ‘passion’ or ‘alternative’ investment, along with collectible cars, watches, and fine wine [among others]. Passion investments are dubbed as such because they require the investor to have a sufficient level of passion and knowledge about the investment. The Knight Frank 2023 Wealth Report reported that “from an investment point of view, art currently leads all other sectors in passion-related luxury investment performance across the world – in fact, at 29%, it performs almost twice the average for this class of investment”. Though a lot of this performance can be attributed to the astronomical prices paid by investors for the art. To quantify the scale; sales of the collections of Microsoft founder Paul Allen and American investor Anne Bass produced in excess of US$2.5 billion.
In summer, beach escapes are tempting, but paradise takes a myriad of forms. Lakes and rivers offer cool, clear water, especially in Switzerland – and the summertime charms of Lake Zurich and the Limmat River are undeniable. If you are a guest of Zurich’s Dolder Grand, Amar Harfy, one of the concierges, may advise you to try the city’s lake and river baths for a refreshingly authentic Zurich experience. After all, this is a city where commuters can be seen swimming to work in the warmer months. But, if you don’t fancy venturing too far from the Dolder Grand – which is entirely understandable – Amar may direct you to Dolder Bad, a pristine pool a short stroll away, or the hotel’s own spa. It boasts a large swimming pool, a Japanese-style Sunaburo and a philosophy that’s all about achieving life balance. A Dolder Grand summer experience is not just about finding beach alternatives, however. Art and culinary delights are plentiful. In 2008, the hotel opened two new wings designed by Foster + Partners, which created a tradition-meets-modernity feel.
