What is heritage insurance?
The word ‘heritage’ in relation to buildings and objects, simply means things from the past that are considered valuable or significant enough to preserve today and for future generations. We define businesses within the heritage sector as those where either the heritage status of the property or the contents itself is fundamental to the business in question. Heritage insurance financially protects these businesses in the case of a claim made against you, or in cases such as fire or theft.
For example, museums and art galleries not only house artefacts and valuable historical art works but are also often listed buildings themselves. As such, they sit firmly within the heritage sector. If you are the owner of one of these businesses then your heritage insurance should cover all your assets, including all buildings and contents. We can also advise you on public and employers' liability cover if it is required.
What other businesses do we cover?
Museums and art galleries aren’t the only businesses that require heritage insurance. If you are an artist, antiques dealer, sculptor, coin or stamp dealer then you will also require heritage insurance cover. Theatres, auction houses, stately homes and heritage centres also require a comprehensive heritage insurance policy to protect the assets of both building and contents alike, providing you with peace of mind and the appropriate security should the unthinkable occur.
We will work with you to undertake a comprehensive review of your existing heritage insurance arrangements to ensure that you are adequately protected. We will also seek to identify and present the most competitive insurance packages available using our strong working relationships with the UK’s leading insurance providers.
