Andrew Mitchell leads the fine art team at Hiscox, which describes itself as ‘one of the oldest, biggest and most successful Lloyd’s syndicates’. The bulk of the business comes from ‘traditional’ valuables, such as paintings, sculptures and antiquities. Mitchell has seen a ‘significant’ rise in the price of coverage of classic cars and musical instruments, and also — ‘at the quirkier end of the spectrum’, he says — in snuff boxes, significant clothing, and memorabilia. The insurer has recently announced a £50 million addition to its marketing budget to attract more private individuals, namely first time insurance buyers and the UK’s flourishing entrepreneurial community.
