Protecting your Investments
Whatever you choose to invest in, then it will be important to protect your investments. Taking steps to keep them in the best condition possible to help them maintain their value will of course be vital.
You’ll also need to protect your investments against a range of perils. One way to do this is to ensure that you have the right insurance in place for your collectibles. This could be a specialist insurance policy, or a high net worth insurance policy.
Whatever type of insurance you put in place, ensure that you have the most up to date valuation of your possessions to ensure you get the right level of cover.
And take the necessary steps required by your insurer to maintain the secure storage of your possessions. Your insurer for example may stipulate possessions need to be kept in a safe and may even specify the type of safe to be used. Failing to adhere to conditions set by your insurer can see your policy invalidated if you do come to claim.
