Eagle Underwriting Expands into Fine Art and Specie Insurance

To some, a painting, a classic car and other collections are more valuable than simply their monetary value. A standard insurance policy may give options to extend coverage for these items but only a monoline policy will ensure all aspects of risk are addressed. Eagle Underwriting Group offers a specialized approach to the client’s Fine Art insurance needs.

Recently, Eagle has brought Veronica Piñon-Standen on board to lead the development of the Fine Art and Specie division. After 12 years in the Fine Art and Specie insurance market in London, Veronica has gained a strong reputation and knowledge in the class. “With the rapid growth of Eagle’s product lines, Veronica brings the perfect combination of energy and expertise to the team in order to lead our Fine Art and Specie division,” says Mike Wills, President of Eagle Underwriting Group Inc. “We are excited to launch this new division which further strengthens our position as Canada’s leading provider for insurance for Things That Move™”.

Eagle’s advantage is that its coverages are tailored around the client’s needs. The expansion of Fine Art and Specie within Eagle now allows for increased risk management designed for high net-worth clients. Currently Eagle holds existing capacities to insure high value yachts, helicopters, and airplanes. Continuing the one-stop-shop mentality, additional opportunities now exist for fine art, classic car collections, bullion and other high value collections.

Likewise, for the commercial client with interest in corporate art, dealers, galleries and trade shows, Eagle provides the knowledge and experience required to underwrite such risks. Specie is also a niche class of insurance less widely known than Fine Art but equally vital to a business. From Mining Organizations to Financial Institutions, many businesses find specie coverage is a crucial asset to their risk management needs. Whether its insuring art galleries, bullion, precious metals, vaults or cash in transit, a specialized program to ensure all risks and exposures are sufficiently covered is vital. Eagle Underwriting can offer brokers and their client peace of mind, confidently knowing that the client’s risks are successfully and efficiently managed.
