It can take years and years to acquire the perfect, valuable piece of fine art, such as a painting, sculpture, tapestry or priceless antique — yet only moments for it to be damaged or destroyed. Ensuring that precious art and valuables are covered should anything happen requires working with a company your clients can trust. That’s why art galleries, banks, museums, jewelers and other businesses turn to AXIS. As an established insurer in this market, AXIS offers specie and fine art insurance backed not only by a knowledgeable team of specialist underwriters, but also an experienced and responsive in-house claims team. Our insurance offers physical loss or damage coverage while in transit or on premises, across all lines of specie and fine art including art, coins, furniture, historical pieces, jewelry and precious stones. AXIS offers a wide range of solutions that go beyond basic policies that simply replace items for an equivalent, offering depreciation compensation, access to restoration experts and more.
