High Net Worth& Specie

The handling of High Net Worth & Specie claims often requires a bespoke approach.

The handling of High Net Worth & Specie claims often requires a bespoke approach due to the nature of the items insured, the circumstances of the policyholder and the (sometimes tailor-made) insurance cover that has been arranged. The CILA High Net Worth & Specie Committee is made up of individuals who are experienced in this type of claims handling and have a strong appreciation of the high net worth customer. The committee supports the development of CILA members by sharing their knowledge and experiences and by providing a window into this interesting sector of the insurance market.
