NEW YORK, NY -- A new generation of consumers are increasingly becoming owners of fine art, jewelry, watches, coins, sports memorabilia, wine, musical instruments and many more collectible items. The values of some of these treasured objects represent considerable private assets and the need for specialty insurance coverage to protect their worth cannot be overstated.
Recognizing technology’s impact on the way consumers buy and experience most products and services today, AXA ART Americas has rolled out an online program where collectors can quickly and easily access specialty insurance coverage to protect items that are potentially vulnerable to losses. The program provides all-risk policies with features designed to protect collectors in the beginning stages, to those with up to $1 million in art and collectibles.
“Today’s tech-savvy consumers expect 24/7 access and online purchasing experiences that are quick, seamless and intuitive,” said Christiane Fischer, President and CEO of AXA ART Americas Corporation. “We are pleased to offer collectors the ability to select and purchase specialty insurance at their convenience.”
Just about anything that can be collected can be covered under an AXA ART Collectibles Insurance policy. When compared to traditional homeowner policies, AXA ART Collectibles Insurance offers more complete coverage at competitive premiums. The application process is simple and fast.

1. Coverage up to $1,000,000 (with higher limits available)
