Private Collectors Policy


About Private Collectors Policy

It is important to use a specialist insurer when looking to protect art collections. Our network of conservator restorers, valuers and advisors provides our clients with the confidence to entrust their precious collections to our joint care. Many artworks can be irreplaceable and conventional damages insurance cannot fulfil this specialised need.

AXA ART appreciates the full extent of art’s vulnerability and we can share our expert understanding of how to assess and minimise every risk for the private collector. This flexibility when dealing with artworks of all types is what makes this product ideal for owners of art collections.

This policy includes emergency evacuation of art if necessary, cover for depreciation following loss or damage and Automatic Acquisition cover for new additions to the collection.

Whom it concerns

This product is designed to work with individuals who have private art collections that benefit from particular attention within an insurance policy.

  • Clients are covered for artworks going to temporary locations across the world.
  • Cover is on an Agreed Value basis, removing concern in the event of a claim because all values have been decided at inception of the policy, or renewal and are on record.
  • Our highly experienced underwriters work closely with insurance advisors to ensure our clients receive the utmost care and attention to detail.
  • The Accidental Damage clause means our clients can relax in the home with their collection, no matter how vulnerable or fragile the art may be.
  • If required, a free risk inspection survey may be offered on a case by case basis.
  • 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.
