Holiday season tips

Finally your holiday is here! But before heading off, make sure your home is not a target for opportunistic burglars. Below are some simple steps that may be worth considering;


Mum’s the word – Insurance for actors & celebrities

In theatrical circles the name Macbeth is often associated with bad luck, so much so that Shakespeare’s classic tragedy is often referred to as “The Scottish Play”.

I suppose then, it is somewhat ironic that our private client team at Macbeth insures a number of high profile actors, celebrities and sport stars. The reason that they choose Macbeth is due to the exceptionally high quality, personal service that we provide, together will the ability to cover higher value items. Whilst some insurers will shy away from insuring actors, celebrities and sport stars our insurers offer a more flexible approach.


High value home insurance – 3 tips to avoid under-insurance

Too many people we meet have little awareness of the value of what they consider to be standard household contents. And that’s before considering items of jewellery, clothing, expensive watches or pieces of art that may have been acquired over the years. Most standard contents insurance policies have claim limits that are inadequate for many people. Even for those who have specified additional items insured, may find that they have not kept pace with the large increases in valuation – all adding up to a picture where it is all too easy to be under-insured.


Art Insurance – Important Areas to Consider when Insuring Art

When insuring art work or any specialist collection it is imperative to source comprehensive and specialist insurance cover. At Macbeth we only offer policies of the highest quality and our panel of bespoke insurers understand the discerning nature of our private clients.
