Anyone who has achieved significant personal wealth will usually have a wide variety of tangible assets to consider as part of diligent financial planning.

If you own multiple homes, a collection of cars, works of art or designer jewellery and watches; you’ll no doubt appreciate their value. Surprisingly, arranging insurance that’s appropriate and fit for purpose is often overlooked.  

Utilising the services of a specialist insurance broker can alleviate the burden of purchasing appropriate insurance.  In addition, a broker can usually save you money and secure better terms of protection by placing all of your assets with one specialist insurance provider.

Known as adopting a ‘portfolio’ approach to insurance, this can be one of the best ways to safeguard your personal wealth.

In the event of a claim, a tailored insurance policy will provide all the protection you’d expect. It can also help to minimise the risks posed by:

  • The ‘small print’ – warranties & clauses
  • Under-insurance – and its financial penalties
  • Assets increasing in value – cars, art, watches & jewellery
  • New acquisitions – instant 90-day cover for new homes, cars, assets
  • Lack of certainty – via an ‘agreed values’ approach

Having provided independent and impartial advice since 1976, Nowell & Richards are one of the UK’s leading brokers specialising in tailored insurance incorporating a ‘portfolio’ approach. They currently advise a wide range of high net worth individuals – including successful corporate business leaders, entrepreneurs and professional sports stars – to ensure their cherished assets are fully protected.

As their clients have complex portfolios spanning different asset classes and countries, they conduct in-depth risk consultations so that they can fully understand exactly what insurance cover your assets and lifestyle require.

Putting your trust in a broker like Nowell & Richards will give you access to a broad market of specialist insurers, rather than one or two providers. They will then tailor a ‘portfolio’ policy to meet your exact requirements, giving you the most appropriate cover and complete peace of mind.

Your dedicated Private Client Executive will manage your account and take care of everything on your behalf, dealing directly with insurers and acting as a first port of call in the event of a claim.

As an independent advisor they will aim to build a personal relationship and understand your lifestyle in order to identify any assets or potential risks which need specialist cover, before recommending an insurance solution that’s best suited to you.
