Ascot is a market leader in specie and fine art insurance and we have one of the most well known and respected teams in the Lloyd’s market. With expertise across the specie class, we lead the majority of the business that we write, including global programmes for some of the world’s largest entities in this class.
We respond swiftly to the complex and changing environments in which many of our customers operate, and genuinely tailor bespoke solutions to their needs. We pride ourselves on swift claims resolution and on being able to react quickly to difficult situations that clients might face post loss.
Our specie and fine art coverages include:
General Specie – We offer insurance solutions for high value interests including gold, securities and cash and we also cover mining interests for precious metals and stones.
Jewellers’ Block – We insure every aspect of a jewellers risk including the stock at their premises and any exposures they may have at exhibitions or shows. We can offer a prompt and independent response to each risk, however large.
Cash in transit – We are a market leader in this business and have a global portfolio ranging from very small regional business to diverse multinational operations. Our experience shows that the key underwriting factor is the strength of a client’s risk management performance.
Fine Art – We seek to establish long term relationships with both museums, private collectors and other not for profit institutional collections to develop insurance solutions that meet their individual ongoing needs.
