Specie & Fine Art

‘Specie' refers to the insurance of valuable property such as precious metals, valuable documents and jewels. Fine art covers all types of collectibles in addition to paintings and sculpture.

Marsh has extensive experience in this sector together with technical and transactional expertise. By looking carefully at your needs, we can create custom-made programs specific to the items you wish to ensure. In the event of a claim, you can rest assured that this will be addressed rigorously and that you will be kept fully informed.

Our specie and fine art services cover a wide range of products, industry sectors and risks. These include:

  • Specie - includes metals from the mining stage, through refining and manufacturing, to the trading of the finished product
  • Financial institutions - with experience of placing risks in excess of $1bn, our services cover premises, safe deposit and transit-related risks, J Form (including cover for electronic securities), and the trading and financing of all types of commodity. We also offer cancelled cheque and Cheque 45 cover, Excess Securities Investment Protection Corporation (SIPC). Excess Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) and Erisa Bonds.
  • Valuable cargo in transit - we work with cash logistics companies, valuable cargo specialists and couriers across the world.

  • Fine art - with access to more than US$1bn of capacity with Lloyd's and the London company market, we offer services to private individuals as well as businesses involved in exhibiting and shipping fine art.
