Advantages to partnering with Huntington T. Block
Our in-house staff can be a differentiator for your agency
If you’ve ever insured a museum or an art gallery, you know it requires very specialized knowledge. How do you assess their collection? What pieces of art should be scheduled versus placed on a blanket? How do you handle their upcoming exhibition in Stockholm?
When you work with HTB, you receive access to our in-house brokers, underwriters and claims specialists. Many of our staff members have years of experience in the art field, including backgrounds in the art sector, which gives them in-depth knowledge of the arts that helps you speak to your clients in a way that will reflect well on your agency.
The ability to offer our proprietary, broad based, fine art policy forms
Our fine art insurance has been created with the vast museum membership of the American Alliance of Museums in mind, as well as the assistance of the London market, all with an eye toward being able to offer one of the most comprehensive policy forms available on the market today.
When you work with HTB, you also receive access to:
- Our significant fine art binding authority with the underwriters
- The ability to customize our fine art policy in order to meet specific client requests
- Our policy for proprietary Exhibition Insurance
- Competitive commissions on fine art insurance
Access to our musical instrument insurance and additional product offerings
While fine art insurance is our specialty, we also have a large book of musical instrument insurance and can assist you whether your client plays percussion in the classroom or on stage in front of an audience. We also have a number of prestigious orchestras insured, professional music associations and instrument dealers.
You’ll also receive access to our network of carriers that offer a broad portfolio of commercial and personal lines products. If you want to use our Fine Art Insurance for your corporate client, and place the property and general liability through one of your other outlets, we’ll be happy to work with you in whatever capacity you desire.
