We have a dedicated team of Insurance Brokers who focus on the specific insurance requirements for high-net worth individuals. Not all insurance companies offer the same benefits, so it’s important to know what you are getting before risking your most prized possessions with a low-cost home and contents policy. We tailor our insurance solutions to fit our clients’ needs. We are committed on providing outstanding cover and first class service.

Key benefits for our Private Clients:

  • Access to the finest craftsmen available to return your home and belongings to their original condition, or at your option, cash settlement with no depreciation applied unlike other standard policies.
  • A free home appraisal.
  • Insured for the full cost to rebuild your home after an insured loss even if this is more than the sum insured. 
  • Automatic Worldwide cover for your possessions, including Jewellery when you are travelling.
