Enjoy Your Art Collection for Generations
July 6, 2015
Collections of fine art and other collectibles can be an expression of the owner’s passions and interests. If collectors want their items—and by extension their image—to shine and impress for many generations to come, they should consider purchasing fine art and collectibles insurance. Such insurance policies, along with ensuring that each piece is properly cared for, help protect the collection and retain its value for the future.

If you have a large collection, but each piece is valued under £10,000, you can insure the entire collection with a blanket policy.

Regardless of how you choose to insure your collection, follow these best practices to help preserve its value.
