Liberty Specialty Markets

Liberty Specialty Markets – Fine Art & Marine Insurance

As a mutual company, we focus not on shareholders and stock markets, but on our policyholders and partners. We take time to get to know your business and what you need from your insurance solution.

We provide insurance support for a diverse range of fine art clients; from world-famous museums to international exhibitions to private collectors and including superyacht owners. Through our expertise in both Marine and Fine Art under one division, we are able to offer a clear understanding of the special requirements of art and design of value on superyachts from an insurance perspective.

We understand the perceived hurdles and complexities of artwork on board, a niche but important risk area. Art on board is by nature mobile and if something goes wrong, you need access to the right support and expertise, rapidly, wherever you are in the world.  When clients approach us for insurance, we are able to advise how best to protect the portfolio and then how to deal with repairs, loss and the claims process should perils occur.
