Understanding Specie & Fine Art insurance
Specie is a moral hazard-exposed class so a key underwriting consideration is the integrity, management and risk management of the insured. We also focus on the crime rate within the environment that the assured is working in. We provide cover to retail, wholesale and manufacturing jewellers for storage and transport risks (including exhibition and consignment risks); diamond processing risks and private individuals for their collections.
