WHY “FINE ART AND COLLECTIONS INSURANCE" ?

Few private investors pay attention to the coverage of their valuable assets, that are often poorly protected by traditional insurance policies.
Building wealth is the result of significant efforts throughout one or more generations.
In the event of a claim, these efforts will vanish due to insignificant attention.
Assets can consist of: paintings, sculptures, tapestries, antiques, contemporary art, rare books, valuable goods, silverware, china, and any other item such as wines, stamps…

PROTECTING YOUR ASSETS UP TO THEIR TRUE VALUE

Our “Art works and Collections” policies will meet your requirements in France and abroad for the protection of your valuable assets as per the guarantee “All Risks Except” (which means that any loss that is not specifically excluded is covered), offering comprehensive policies, such as :

Various choice of refund in the event of a claim:
  • Payment of the restoration and of the depreciation of the work of art
  • Replacement with another item of equal quality and value
  • Compensation of up to 100% of the agreed value
  • Coverage against Theft, Fire, Water Damage, Breakage, accidental damage, and reimbursement of any additional expenses (including transportation of the items to the art restorer)
