About ArtFirst Policy

When art collections are in their infancy, other specialist art products may not be suitable. This is why ArtFirst was created specifically to cover collections under the value of £1,000,000. There may be significant buying and selling in the early years of a collection so life is made easier for our clients by not having to declare every new acquisition until annual renewal.

Depreciation following loss or damage is covered under the policy and should there be an emergency, AXA ART will be on hand to arrange evacuation. Our art experts are also happy to offer advice on the budding collection when assessing risks of the property.

Whom It concerns

ArtFirst is designed for start up collectors. Those with collections under the value of £1,000,000 are eligible for this product.

  • Cover is on a declared value basis, which is reviewed at annual renewal. Any increases or decreases to the collection are automatically covered without having to inform AXA ART, provided the value remains below £1,000,000.
  • Restoration and repair cover are provided in this policy.
  • Our highly experienced underwriters work closely with insurance advisors to ensure our clients receive the utmost care and attention to detail.
  • Cover for the collection whilst at your home and temporarily elsewhere.
  • No premium adjustments during the year so clients know the price will not change to reflect acquisitions until renewal.
  • Providing superior customer service during a difficult time, AXA ART offer a dedicated Claims person that is a consistent contact from beginning to end of the claim.
