Art and collectables are a fast growing asset class around the world. Representing years of value that could diminish in a matter of seconds, it’s critical to take the time to insure with an expert who understands the length and breadth of the industry. Damage, an increasing rise in cultural crime and forgery can translate to serious loss in terms of your appreciating works and collectables.
If you’re a commercial dealer or collector of appreciating assets, or a specialist storage or transport facility, you need to speak to us because iTOO Artinsure is the only insurance provider that understands the value of art and collectables as much as you do, because our business has been built by collectors.
Why iTOO Artinsure?
Service that comes from a love of what we cover. Expertise that translates to value.
Our specialists are the first to market uniquely designed cover, tailored to collectors and the commercial entities that service them.
COMMERCIAL ART WORLD COVER:
We understand that from auction houses to dealers, accidental damage or theft of stock, will affect your business functionality, which is precisely why our product is specially designed to protect your bottom line. The option of including transit, forgery and defective title cover offers further protection.
ART COLLECTOR COVER:
We are collectors and share the same passion and understanding, which is reflected in our highly specialised policies. These treasured items, in a private collection, on exhibition, at a museum or a company’s premises require agreed value-bespoke cover that includes theft or damage along with cover options to include transits, forgery or cover for whilst they’re entrusted to a third party. Our team of experts will ensure they never lose their true value.
By combining our passion and expertise in art-related assets and insurance – together with our excellent global networks in both – we have a complete and unique understanding of this specialist asset class.
