In the past, private collections were typically insured on a homeowner’s policy.  However in today’s landscape, it has become more and more common that collectors are choosing to insure their collections on specialized fine art policies. This session will focus on what to look for when selecting a fine art insurance policy, and what exclusions to avoid.
