Art & Private Client Insurance

Designed in consultation with brokers, our new Art & Private Client insurance policy allows us to meet the individual insurance needs of private clients for their homes, contents, art, collections and jewellery.

From heritage through to contemporary

Our specialism in insuring heritage buildings is well known – it’s been our business for over 125 years – but we also insure a much wider range of homes, from heritage through to contemporary.
