    Jewellery, Fine art & Specie

    Underwriter - Jewellery, Fine Art & Specie

    Insurance of fine arts, jewellery or valuable property while in storage and in transit anywhere in the world against physical loss or damage.

    All assets known as specie share the fact that they are valuable. At Beazley we believe this is where the similarity ends.

    Those in the jewellery trade have different concerns to organisations that regularly transport cash. The protection needed by those with a fine art collection is not the same as required for storing financial instruments.

    As experts in their respective fields, our underwriters bring many years of experience to designing insurance cover to meet the needs and circumstances of each client and the assets that they need protecting.

    Central to our approach is forming longstanding relationships with brokers and their clients around the world. By working together we are not only able to create the right insurance cover but can also advise on practical security measures to keep people and assets safe.

    And should the worst happen, our specialist claims team has a reassuring track record of exceptional service and endorsing the broker's good judgement in having recommended Beazley to their clients.
