Christie’s launches insurance business

Christie’s has launched an insurance services business for clients based in the UK and European customers serviced from London.

The world-famous art dealer says it can offer a unique service for the sophisticated collector, in partnership with Heath Lambert and Chubb Insurance.

The trio aim to provide private clients with “bespoke, seamless insurance, that encompasses not only art but all personal insurance needs, including homes, cars, jewellery as well as travel, legal expenses and personal liability”.

The group’s European president, Jussi Pylkkanen, comments: “This high calibre insurance service has been requested by our clients for some time, many of whom buy, sell, store and transport works of art through us.”

Heath Lambert’s managing director of the Art, Jewellery, Private Client Division, Richard Northcott, adds: “We understand that private individuals expect a discreet, highly confidential and professional service to discuss the protection of their personal assets.”

The broker has a fine art insurance team that is reckoned to be one of the largest and most experienced in the industry.

Its clients range from galleries and museums to individual private collectors, corporate collectors, fine art and antique dealers and shippers.
