Private client home insurance

Why private client home insurance?

Lots of people are unaware of the true value of their home from an insurance perspective, be it the cost to rebuild or the cost of replacing all its contents in a disaster such as a fire.

Underinsurance of property is a common problem with total rebuild costs not being properly considered, often leaving many high-value items without cover under “one-size-fits-all” insurance policies. We can arrange cover that helps protect all of your valuables.

    We can arrange a solution that can extend to cover assets including first and second homes, contents including fine art, antiques, jewellery and collectables, and even yachts and pleasure craft.
  • Around the world
    We can design cover that moves with you, protecting you and your assets all over the world as you move from one place to the next.
