"The Mei Moses family of fine art indices for the first time gives us the information that allows for the inclusion of art in asset allocation decisions. I was happy to include their results in my most recent books titled, the Art of Asset Allocation and Mastering the Art of Asset Allocation, published by McGraw-Hill."

"I have found the Mei Moses Indices to be indispensable tools in appraisal assignments. In a field which requires the appraiser to make many subjective judgments, the indices provide clear objective data which serve as essential points of departure and points of reference for the appraiser to arrive at the best possible valuation conclusions. I enthusiastically endorse the use of the indices and will gladly recommend them to my many students and colleagues."
