Our in-depth understanding of the unique risks in the art world means we speak your language. Our expert advice is backed up with efficient and highly personal service, helping to save you time and hassle when you need to make a claim. Every art business is different, so we take the time to understand your priorities and the dynamics of your work.

Why do you need specialist fine art insurance?

The business of buying and selling art involves very specific risks, which can change even from hour to hour as the work is installed, de-installed, handled and shipped worldwide. Art dealers and galleries need an insurance adviser who is approachable, responsive and flexible. We specialise in insurance for private art collectors, art galleries and dealers, conservators and musical instrument makers and dealers.

Fine art risks aren’t always what you’d expect. Art theft grabs headlines – but it’s rare. Inventory changes constantly, with work on consignment, at fairs and events. Water damage presents an increasingly dangerous threat. And, if you’re a public space or hold client data, your liability is a serious business. Our team of insurance experts have a genuine knowledge of art and a detailed technical understanding of fine art and instruments. We work with some of the world’s leading art insurers, who understand the sensitivities, market dynamics, and the importance of preserving works of art and fine instruments for future generations.

We’ll support you with expert advice, helping you manage your risks and make good decisions, so when you make a claim you get a better outcome.

This specialist advisory practice is delivered by La Playa, which is part of the Partners& group, and is separately authorised and regulated by the FCA registration number, 305655.
