Protecting your assets is essential.
Our high-net-worth clients are familiar with the importance of a reliable, well researched and qualified valuation document to ensure speedy settlement of any potential claim.
Jewellery is something we all hold particularly close to our hearts, which often carries a significant emotional memory.
Ensuring that you are adequately insured in the event of theft or loss can help to ease what can be a devastating time, as replacing your precious items can be a near impossible feat without the correct and up-to-date documentation.
This is particularly true in the current economic climate, where values of everything can and will change over time, which makes it vitally important to regularly revisit the current market value of your portfolio regularly to ensure that you’re up to date.
When the worst does happen, do you have the right documentation in place in order to make a compelling claim?
Most insurers will not accept a valuation more than three years old, nor are they likely to accept a valuation from a non ‘Institute Registered Valuer’.
Can you answer these questions:
● Can you describe the item?
● What date was it made?
● What components were used?
A highly qualified jewellery valuer and consultant can answer these questions in detail, leaving no doubt surrounding the value of your piece or collection.
An expertly prepared valuation document is an investment in the future of your assets and a valuation from Heather Callaway Ltd provides maximum assurance for you and your insurers.
