Where standard is not enough

Museums and exhibition houses are increasingly faced with economic and administrative challenges when realising a lively and captivating programme of exhibitions and events. Focus is on controlling and an increase in self-financing. All the more reason, therefore, that insurances for museum collections and temporary exhibitions with international loans must offer financially feasible and yet efficient and reliable solutions.

For this reason, it makes sense to regularly check the benefit-cost ratio of insurance services used in connection with the exhibition operations of museums and art galleries on the market. We provide advice on the potential for optimization. Owing to our independence and our intimate knowledge of the international art insurance market, we create competition and identify and implement optimisation opportunities.

… on special underwriting requirements of international lenders

… on questions of actuarial practice

… on government indemnity schemes and supplementary difference in conditions and limits coverage in the event that the liabilty offered by the public sector is not sufficient
