The benefits of separating fine art and specie from property cover

Fine art and specie, particularly when they are of high value, tend not to be appropriately insured when included in property cover as they often require more specialised attention. Understanding the different treatment fine art and specie require in the underwriting process is crucial to restore the value of these assets following a loss event.

Inside Risk: Fire protection impairment management

Fixed fire protection systems such as sprinklers are an effective way to control or suppress a fire in its early stages, limiting the potential loss to the property and the business, as well as the risk to life. However, to be effective, fire protection systems need to be available (not impaired), reliable (maintained) and adequate. Fire protection impairments continue to be one of the most common reasons for sprinkler failure and this risk needs to be addressed with a robust fire protection impairment programme.Fixed fire protection systems such as sprinklers are an effective way to control or suppress a fire in its early stages, limiting the potential loss to the property and the business, as well as the risk to life.
