Specie Insurance

We underwrite a broad portfolio of Specie risks.

The fine art and specie team has over 25 years’ combined experience. We adopt a disciplined risk selection approach to align ourselves with insureds who demonstrate strong risk awareness and management. We develop longstanding relationships with our clients and brokers through strong communication and by providing the highest levels of service with quick, flexible and consistent decisions.

We write a balanced portfolio of core and specialty products. From this foundation, we work constantly on developing new solutions to ensure we can respond to our clients’ evolving needs.
