OUR PRODUCT

Has been developed in partnership with UNIQA Versicherungen AG, a pan European insurance company providing a broad range of insurance products.

Our product covers the insurance of all historic and heritage buildings, their contents and artworks.

Experience has shown that insuring historic and heritage buildings is not an easy task. Because the costs of rebuilding / repairing historic buildings is much greater than normal, they are often underinsured. The result is that in the event of partial or total recontruction the cover is insufficient for the desired reconstruction. Also because of the specialised nature of these buildings many owners are charged excessive premiums.

Additionally the extra cost of the restoration in respect of the listed historic building statutes for protected buildings are often not covered. This includes items such as using historically correct materials, ornamental features, frescoes etc..

Our historic / heritage building insurance policy provides the optimal protection for listed buildings.
