Turning insurance into a fine art

Blockbuster art exhibitions travel from city to city featuring some of the world’s best-known works of art. The London insurance market insures major exhibitions against theft and accidental damage, ensuring that each piece is packed and shipped to protect it en route and making it possible for the world to see great works of art.

As well as insuring them, underwriters in London also provide risk management guidance to some of the most exciting art shows. Most importantly, they make sure that the right packers and shippers—ones that specialise in art transit—are used for logistics.

Museums and galleries typically attract more visitors each year than sports events and theme parks combined — the London insurance market makes it possible for people to see and experience many national treasures and famous pieces from private collections across the world.
