We insure art collections.
Art as an investment is becoming increasingly significant against the backdrop of the international financial situation. We analyse your collection’s current situation as regards insurance cover and develop loss- and damage-oriented solutions so that your investment is well covered.

As part of the Art Cologne, we invite you to the annual Cologne Fine Art Insurance Talk.
One of the ways that companies fulfil their social responsibility is by accumulating collections of art. In so doing, they support the prevailing cultural identity in their own localities. Entrepreneurial far-sightedness and individuality originate and cultivate valuable collections whose value trajectory follows that of the art market.
It is generally the case that the classic instruments of industrial insurance leave these valuable objects and their preservation inadequately protected – in the financial sense – for the owners. This is a major challenge for every responsible person in the respective company.
In collaboration with the insurance departments and the commercial undertakings, we develop the right concept from the standpoint of general risk management.

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.
