Who Needs an Antiques Insurance Policy?
A collection of art and antiques can be valuable for many reasons. While sentimental and emotional attachment can’t be guarded against, financial protection can. Whether you are a professional dealer or enthusiastic collector, having protection in place that accurately reflects your assets and their storage is invaluable. Fine Art Insurance covers risks such as damage, loss and theft. At Ellis David, we take the time to understand your precise needs, so that the cover you pay for accurately reflects the value and risks involved, while also ensuring you don’t pay for cover you don’t need. A Fine Art Insurance or Antiques Insurance Policy is necessary for a wide range of people including:
- Private Collectors – who may keep their antiques in their home for private display.
- Dealers – who perhaps have a large collection of antiques stored in a showroom. Your collection may constantly rotate and therefore change in value according to what stock you have.
- Museums or Exhibitors – whose collection moves around from gallery to gallery and requires additional transportation insurance.
