We have a passion for art, in all its forms, which enables us to appreciate the attachment clients have for the items they own – be they emotional, aesthetic, historic or economic.
In order to comply with regulatory requirements you need to deal with us through a FAIS accredited insurance broker. If you do not have a broker we can introduce you to a local one competent in our products.
It is likely that standard asset insurance policies are not sufficient to respond adequately to appreciating assets such as art, collectables and valuables collections if lost, stolen or damaged. Works of art, collectables and valuables are unique and therefore irreplaceable. Even where professional restoration is possible, damage to any item may devalue it. By taking advantage of Artinsure’s specialised products, collectors can ensure that their financial interests in their appreciating assets are fully protected.
It is likely that photographers' insurance policies are not sufficient to respond to the risks that their equipment faces. Our products are designed with an understanding of photographers' exposures. By taking advantage of Artinsure’s specialised products photographic equipment may be better protected.
Although Artinsure don’t value the works ourselves, we have a panel of independent appraisers covering a comprehensive and extensive range of collectables. The valuer charges a separate fee which is for the client's own account.
No, but we do apply minimum premiums.
All premiums quoted contain a 20% commission payable to the broker. We do not charge fees in addition. Brokers with whom we deal may charge additional fees which must be disclosed to you.
Our claims process is our expertise. Let us know as soon as possible (the earlier the better to minimise loss) and we will manage the process with the key aim of making this a smooth process that returns your client to the same financial position they were in prior to the claim.
