Top Causes of Fine Art Claims

AIG Private Client Group is always looking for ways to help you protect your valued assets. One way we do this is by analyzing past claims. When we reviewed the fine art claims endured by our policyholders, we learned a valuable lesson: the majority of losses could have been prevented.

Get the facts

Most collectors insure their art to protect it from occurrences such as fire, flooding or theft. However, more than 60 percent of losses are caused by breakage and accidental damage. 

We’re here to help

In addition to robust insurance coverage, AIG Private Client Group can help you preserve the value of your collection and keep it out of harm’s way. Our in-house art collection managers offer comprehensive services ranging from emergency planning to shipping recommendations.
