Insurance Management

Our qualifications and specialisation in insurance and the art business open up an exceptional and wide-ranging spectrum of services and advice tailored to your specific insurance interests.


Risk analysis and ongoing advice

We understand insurance management as an integrated process, beginning with our detailed consultation and analysis of your insurance needs and your existing insurance portfolio.

Together, we determine the optimal combination of risk transfer and own risk assumption that meets your insurance coverage requirements.

We are interested in a long-term cooperation with you. Accordingly, we measure ourselves by the continuous and consistently qualitative service we provide.

Shaping individual risk transfer

We define the contents of your insurance cover in close consultation with you. The goal will always be the beneficial and sustainable transfer of those risks that you consider relevant to your particular life situation, company or activity.

We develop independent and exclusive insurance concepts with selected insurers who are established and internationally active in the market segment of art insurance. In doing so, we use the possibilities and the spectrum of the insurance market creatively and adeptly.

Our cooperation with insurance companies is based on continuity and trust built up over many years. Our business relationships with insurers are resilient, characterised by personal contacts and tried and tested over many years.


We select suitable insurance companies on the basis of clear criteria:

Willingness to adapt to the special features of art as an object of insurance solutions, especially in the case of claims settlements.

Quality and suitability of the insurance conditions / insurance products

Flexibility and customer orientation with a view to requirements for numerous options to shape individual insurance wordings


Quality and reliability in claims settlements
