Some $840 million in investment has poured into Sotheby’s and Shutterstock over the past few weeks from big-league wealth managers, Skate’s points out in the latest edition of its Market Notes column, with the Vanguard group grabbing a 5.5 percent stack in the auction house to join Morgan Stanley and BlackRock in the company.
Sotheby’s, which is currently hunting for a new CEO, following William Ruprecht’s announcement last November that he would step down, has seen its stock climb 20 percent over the past 6 months, though the share price has been essentially flat over the past year.
