My policy already covers my jewellery, what are differences with the high net worth insurer?

Subject to valuation, high net worth insurers cover items on an agreed value basis.

When you take out home contents insurance you will have protection for your personal possessions at your residence. Personal possessions insurance extends the cover for loss or damage outside of your home.

Typical items covered are portable computer equipment, jewellery, contents of a handbag, clothing, hearing aids and glasses.

What should I include in my contents cover?

Your contents cover should include anything that is not built in - for example furniture, white goods, carpets, curtains, clothes, linen, kitchenware and so on.

Can cover be issued without onerous security requirements?

It is possible to arrange cover on what is known as a warranty free basis. This means that the Insurer does not stipulate that locks and alarm must be used and cannot refuse a claim if they are not put in place (although there is the expectation that in general they will be put in place).

What is the most effective way of insuring fine art, antiques and jewellery?

These kinds of items can be insured on an agreed value basis. This means that in the event of a loss, this is the amount you will be paid (sometimes a valuation may be required for higher value items).

Yes cover can be arranged for jewellery, art, antiques or other such items whilst being stored in a bank, safety deposit box or whilst being restored/repaired.
