We make sure your art is safe.

Do you have one or more works of art at home that are of value to you? Art insurance protects your art in the event of damage, destruction or loss. With a scope of cover that goes beyond conventional household contents insurance.

Insurance products are complex. Insuring well is therefore no easy task. There are a variety of art insurance policies, but which is the right one for your project?

In many cases, you only see how good insurance is when a claim occurs. That's why we work with our clients to create an individual insurance concept that is sensitively tailored to their projects, and we are happy to explain the contents of individual insurance products.

About us

It is the love of art and the absolute satisfaction of our clients that has made us so successful for more than 35 years.

We deliberately focus on the things we know something about and have experts for all essential areas of risk management and occupational pension provision. For special requirements, we can draw on our network of experienced specialists.

Few insurance brokers have such a broad range of experience in all areas of insurance. Through many years of experience, both with insurance companies and insurance brokers, and always in close contact with our clients, we have learned to speak all the necessary languages. We have been able to develop our current expertise through many years of working for other companies. Innovation is our constant companion.

Philosophy

Zilkens Fine Art Insurance Broker GmbH is an owner-run (CV Dr. Stephan Zilkens) company. This lends a special significance to our corporate philosophy, as the owner vouches with his name for the company’s services and performance.

Two characteristics define our brand essence. One is our love of art and the other is our customers’ absolute satisfaction. Only the consonance of these two factors makes us successful.

To fulfil our aspiration of providing reliable orientation in an increasingly complex world, we adhere to a set of ethical and moral principles. The quality of our work plays a special part in this process. We want to and can distinguish ourselves only with excellent performance and customer satisfaction.

We endeavour to advise our customers neutrally and in the optimum manner with a high level of expertise. Reliability is seen as something special these days, but we live and breathe it on a daily basis. We always search for the the best and safest solution because we have geared our customer relationships to the long-term.
