Clare Pardy, a qualified art historian, is an intellectual among insurers. Hallett Independent’s veteran broker, who joined the firm to develop its book of museum, historic house and private client business, recently gave a lecture at the Insurance Institute of London on ‘who and what’ makes the art market tick in a wider economic framework. With over 30 years’ experience in the art insurance market, she regards broking as an art in itself. ‘[It’s about] getting to know the client, understand their business and way of life and helping them to find an insurance cover that chimes with both.’ She finds it ‘tricky’ to choose a favourite art work, but says ‘if I could own a Rodin bronze I’d be very happy’.
