I think it is very important to have a good working relationship with Insurers and I cannot speak enough of how highly I rate Kara as both a claims handler and as a referral point for the finer points of the Ecclesiastical Policy.
Cover for high net worth clients can include:
All risks basis of cover, plus additional covers, including business interruption, trustee indemnity and travel cover.
Extended payment cover for buildings (including listed buildings), fine art and valuables.

The Ecclesiastical Heritage Index (EHI) is the first of its kind and is exclusive to Ecclesiastical customers. It tracks the cost of materials and labour associated specifically with buildings of a traditional construction reducing the risk of underinsurance.
