Specialist insurance and protection solutions for high net worth individuals Your time is as precious as your possessions – your nearest and dearest even more so. That’s why it’s good to know there’s a specialist personal insurance partner you can rely on to build the range of protections you need. As wealth grows, lifestyles change and priorities shift – but there remain only 24 hours in a day. As a high net worth individual, you’ll be likely to have a diverse and complex range of insurance needs that take time to assess, arrange and administer. You may also be wondering if you’re receiving the right levels of service and value – or even sufficient precision or performance from the insurance protections you already have. But there’s one thing we know for sure: you are accustomed to – and expect – true service excellence as a given. That’s why when time is short and assets are many, you need someone you can trust to turn the burden of insurance complexity into risk simplicity that works harder for you and yours – wherever you may be and whatever you’re doing. At Oval Insurance Broking (Oval) our Private Clients team prides itself on a first class, discreet and personal service that’s as innovative and flexible as it is responsive and effective. We understand that no two private clients are the same: that’s why our team of experienced and highly qualified specialists makes us the insurance advisory partner of choice for many high net worth individuals across the UK. We offer a skilled service that ensures the bespoke tailoring of any and every protection you might need – for today and for tomorrow. All managed through your own dedicated insurance professional who has the time, experience and the listening skills to understand your needs and build an enduring relationship that adds value to the lifestyle choices you make. With access to specialist high net worth insurers able to satisfy whatever your circumstances demand, we’ll

work with you to review your current position, map your future expectations and pressure-test the value of your existing personal, home and possession covers – before making our informed recommendations. From the largest private estates to the individual family home, we provide personal solutions that are underwritten by the leading specialist providers of high net worth insurance. These include industry leaders such as Chubb, Oak and Aviva.

Welcome to Oval Private Clients: insurance that protects you, your family and your assets As a top UK insurance broker, we provide specific insurance solutions – often at preferred rates – that identify liability, quantify risk, cut cost, integrate cover and protect you across the following areas: • Homes, including historic and listed property • Contents, including fine art, jewellery, wine and other high value collections • Holiday homes in the UK and overseas • Investment and Buy-to-Let property • Motor, including specialist car, collectors and family fleet • Yachts, from small pleasure craft right through to super, mega and giga categories • Lifestyle protection – accident, travel security and safety – including kidnap and ransom cover

Delivering the right protection for your bricks, mortar and possessions Surprisingly, 6.8 million UK homes are currently underinsured with over £212 billion of home contents at risk1. That’s why we like to recommend insurers who will appraise your property at no charge, ensuring you have the correct rebuilding sum in your policy. With around a quarter of people with UK contents policies underinsured by an average of £20,000 each2, we work with a range of valuation specialists dedicated to protecting your valuables, art and contents for their true worth.
