Fine Art, Jewellery & Specie

JLT Belgibo has links to a leading fine art, jewellery and specie team that are dedicated to providing tailored advice and solutions to give you the peace of mind that comes from the protection of your valuable assets.

The past decade has seen huge changes in the fine art, diamond and jewellery sector.

Values have increased dramatically, leading to record-breaking fine art and coloured stone sales. Online sales have also grown rapidly and asset-based lending has progressed as the buying patterns of collectors have changed.

A reduction in the global supply of rough diamonds from the world’s diamond producing mines has led to a rise in prices. And increased regulation has presented challenges to businesses looking to expand their operations overseas.

In such a complex and demanding market, a fresh perspective is needed to ensure that you are properly protected. This means working with a broker that has the expertise and experience to make sure your coverage adapts to reflect your evolving risks.

Our colleagues in the fine art, diamonds and jewellery team are a highly specialist and experienced group who are able to design or source a wide range of products to help you manage your exposures and protect your business.

Put simply, they use in-depth knowledge of your industry, your risks and your business to design competitively priced, innovative insurance solutions wherever you are in the world.
