Honestly turning the tradition of buying and selling into a financially regulated market is ludicrous. How can a fund decide what a work of art is worth? A painting? a sculpture? If it wasn’t for the beauty, singularity and enjoyment of art it would be worth exactly the materials used to create it. I couldn’t word your argument better, “You can’t be ripped off if you’re paying for your own subjective enjoyment of artwork.”
People don’t buy extremely expensive art to make a profit. If they are trying to then that is stupid.
