Why specialist art insurance?

From Old Masters to contemporary masterpieces, paintings to sculptures, wherever your passion for art lies, you can be confident we’ll be equally as passionate about protecting your prized art collection. Our private client’s team has a wealth of experience in curating fine art insurance policies with specialist providers, working with knowledgeable valuers to establish accurate valuations of your art collection, to ensure you’re adequately protected. Allowing you to sit back and enjoy your collection with confidence.

  • Agreed value cover ‒ For specified items you can arrange an agreed value which means if you suffer a covered claim, you will receive the agreed value in compensation.
  • Restoration cover – We can arrange cover for items to be restored, and where sadly the restoration attempt has been unsuccessful, will pay any loss to the item’s market value. Cover can also be extended for undamaged items that happen to form part of a pair or set.
  • Total loss extended replacement cover – For specified items that have been valued in a given recent period, we can look to arrange cover that will honour the current market value, even if this is higher than the amount shown on the valuation.

How our prestige insurance experts can help

We understand your art collection can often be more than an investment, it can also reflect your travels, memories and gifts from loved ones passed down through generations. While standard home insurance policies may protect some of your valuable possessions, it’s likely to be limited. Artwork especially, can be one of the few items in your home that can appreciate in value over time, so it’s important you have a specialist fine art insurance provider who understands the market and is aware of the specific risks your collection may face. 

Our team of prestige insurance experts will work with you to find the best cover options available for your collection, and your needs. With a network of professionals in valuations, installing, transit through to conservation and restoration, we can help support you if the unfortunate happens.

High value home insurance

Are you aware of the true value of your home? Are you confident you know the cost of a full rebuild, or the cost of replacing all your belongings? Property underinsurance is a common problem. Total rebuild costs are often overlooked, leaving many high-value items without cover under “one-size-fits-all” insurance policies. Our prestige home insurance offers more.


Jewellery and watch insurance

A significant birthday present, a grandmother’s engagement ring, an anniversary watch…jewellery and watches are often much more than just beautiful objects. We can arrange prestige home insurance policies that will provide watch and jewellery insurance.
