Fine Art & Collections Insurance

Fine Art Insurance

When it comes to insurance for fine art, it pays to talk to a specialist insurance broker like us who appreciates the true value of your collection. We understand the importance of finding exactly the right fine art & collections insurance to meet your specific requirements.

Fine art can be described as anything that can be bought and sold at a specialist auction. The type of art and objects that come under a fine art policy might be snuff boxes made of precious metals, ancient coins, large canvasses, and sculptures.

You may need a fine art insurance policy if you have a unique item that would be difficult to replace, artworks that you may lend to museums and exhibitions and valuable items held in storage. Talk to us to find out how we can cover your fine art collection.

Talk to our expert team about arranging specialist antiques insurance with us. We will make sure you get the correct level of protection and provide you with peace of mind knowing that your valuables have the correct coverage.

Collections Insurance

We offer bespoke insurance products for private art collections, corporate art collections and antique collections, including insurance cover for individual high-value items.

Our private collections policies, available with specialist insurers, are designed specifically to meet the needs of collectors. Cover can be arranged on an agreed value basis so that you can be sure you are properly compensated if the worst should happen. We make it easy to find the right insurance and can even recommend valuers to you through our network at your request.

If you should need to claim, our insurers have access to specialist restorers as we know that your collection is personal and should be salvaged if possible. Furthermore, loss of value following damage is covered so that you are not left out of pocket.

Often, standard commercial cover won’t be suitable for businesses which have large art collections within their workplaces. We can find specialist policies to cover your corporate collection so that you can be confident that your business assets are properly protected, as a part of your overall risk management programme.

We realise that each piece is chosen to fit within your office’s aesthetic. Where possible, our insurers’ restorers will bring the piece to nearly the same condition prior to the damage. Of course, any reduction in value can be considered so that your business is properly compensated. Get in touch with us to talk about your collection and we will find the most suitable insurance policy for you.

Benefits of our fine art & collections insurance

As a rule of thumb, it is recommended to have your precious items valued every three to five years to know their correct value. This is also important for making sure you are not underinsured which can lead to problems when claims arise.  We can point you in the right direction to respected valuers; you can have them come to your home, visit their premises, or sometimes have a preliminary valuation online.

We can tailor your fine art & collections insurance so it can be arranged on a worldwide basis (including accidental damage), meaning your collection is covered wherever it may be in the world.
