We understand the complexities and unique nature of the challenges those working in a heritage building can face – just one reason why brokers have voted Ecclesiastical as the best heritage insurer for the past 11 years1.
Specialist fine art, collections and antiques cover
Art historians and heritage specialists complement our insurance expertise at Ecclesiastical. This means that we have a comprehensive understanding of the unique nature of your artwork and collections and the expertise to protect even the most bespoke risks.
Providing specialist building valuations
We know it’s the specialist characteristics which make historic buildings unique, so we work hard to help you protect those features. We can provide a buildings valuation and link it to our Ecclesiastical Heritage Index
, a specialist building index which tracks the costs of building materials and specialist skills that are often unique to heritage buildings, all at no additional cost2
Risk management services
We work with organisations like The Heritage Alliance and Historic England to understand risks in the sector and find answers to some of the issues our customers face, like health and safety solutions which are not detrimental to the building’s original features. For risk advice, you’ll have access to our free risk advice line
and we’ve also developed a Preferred Supplier Network with leading market specialists to help you avoid or mitigate risks to which you may be exposed.
