Examples or Scenarios
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.
