Berkley Insures Fine Art and Jewelry

What does aviation have to do with fine art and jewelry? Well, not much … aside from our opinion that an airplane is a thing of beauty. And, we want you to know that Berkley Asset Protection provides a complete line of insurance and loss control for another niche market: art galleries, museums, jewelry businesses, individual’s precious collections and other clients with high-value assets to protect.

Perhaps this is an expansion opportunity for your brokerage, or you may have current clients who would benefit from the coordinated, expert coverage you’ve come to expect from a W. R. Berkley company.

Berkley Asset Protection staff possesses in-depth knowledge and experience in high-value assets and how to insure them. Its Fine Arts Policy and Jewelers Block can be combined with appropriate business coverages to create a custom, comprehensive insurance solution.

  • Money, Securities, Precious Metals
    Businesses with high-value exposures involving money, securities, and/or precious metals can be at greater risk of loss. Target market segments include armored cars, check cashers, pawn, casinos, mining, and ATMs, among others.
