In such a specialised field as Fine Art and Specie, there really is no substitute for knowledge and experience.

Our team of experts have been together for many years, so there is very little, if anything, that we haven’t seen or had to find a solution for. We've created insurance programmes that go well beyond the norm to deliver the cover that our clients need, not just that which insurers wish to provide.

Range of coverage

  • Fine Art: comprehensive All Risks cover, covering a wide range of collectible items
  • General Specie: covers precious metals, securities, cash and crypto currencies
  • Jewellery & gemstones: solutions for a wide range of different operations within the industry.
  • Cash in transit: includes All Risks of Physical Loss or Damage coverage for cash, precious metals and other valuables while at rest or in transit.

We can arrange programmes on a direct or reinsurance basis, whether facultative or treaty, and have extensive experience working with captive insurers. We can also arrange binding authorities on behalf of producing brokers or MGA’s. 

Our expertise also includes:

  • Professional Indemnity
  • Political Risk
  • Political Violence including Terrorism
  • Crime Bonds
  • Cyber Risk
  • Defective Title
  • Business Interruption
  • UK and European buildings and liabilities
  • And for high net worth homes, global capacity for buildings.
