Personal dedicated service
Each of our clients and their families have their own dedicated Account Executive looking after them. As our clients' needs change and develop, so do their policies.

As well as combining multiple property policies into one easy to manage renewal date, we can also combine prestige car insurance policies to one policy with one renewal date for home and car.
Prestige car insurance
When purchasing a performance car, considering the engine size, model and interior are some of the first priorities. But, one of the biggest challenges can be finding suitable insurance. Standard insurance cover often falls short when premium or classic vehicles are involved.
Protecting you and your family
When considering your protection requirements it's important not to overlook the health and wellbeing of yourself and your family. We can advise on a range of healthcare options including preventative measures such as health screening.
Planning an extension or home renovation?
Don't forget to tell your insurers before any work commences or they could decline any claims that may arise. Your home insurance policy will detail the limits of acceptable works that they can cover within your existing policy. In many cases, the best approach may be to arrange a relevant renovation insurance package to cover your home and the building works for the duration of the project.
A holiday doesn’t just need to be expensive to warrant specialist travel insurance, especially if you are travelling with costly items like ski equipment and performance bikes. Our policies can cover all eventualities. And where you do have expensive holidays, our insurers are able to offer high levels of cancellation cover.
Frequently asked questions
Yes you may be able to but we would recommend that you check exactly what you are covered for. After all, purchasing a policy to insure what you estimate to be the value of your assets might seem easy; but in reality, it really does make sense to seek professional assistance in calculating the true cost of replacement.
This will help ensure that you get accurate, up-to-date valuations on items such as antiques, classic cars and jewellery. It will also make sure that you don’t overlook the impact of investments made in restorations, landscaping and other improvements on your insurance needs.
As well as being based on accurate valuations, it is important that your insurance isn’t restricted by the limits and conditions normally found in standard policies. You deserve the reassurance that your cover will ensure you are fully reimbursed for the loss of a valuable anniversary necklace or birthday watch, or the accidental damage of a bespoke kitchen installation, for example. After all the worst time to find out your insurance isn’t what you thought is when you need to claim.
A typical home insurance policy might not cover all of your possessions. Our Private Clients team can arrange a high net worth prestige insurance policy that can protect your assets including fine art, high-end jewellery, yachts and motor vehicles.
Additional buildings to your main house such as stables, swimming pools and tennis courts can also be included in the one policy.
