Over 1,000 agents have now enrolled in the MiniCo Collectibles Insurance program offering coverage for private collections of fine art and other collectibles.

Launched in late 2011, MiniCo Collectibles Insurance provides all-risk coverage for private collections of any size in a home or storage facility. Collections are insured for their full collectible value, and no appraisal is required at the time of application.

Keith McConnell, MiniCo’s vice president of business development, said that feedback the company has received about MiniCo Collectibles Insurance demonstrates that agents are increasingly choosing the program as an alternative coverage solution for clients with valuable collections.

“Agents report that they enjoy the ease of use of our online agent portal and the ability to get a quick quote to insure collections in a number of popular categories,” he said. “They also tell us that they appreciate the wide range of eligible collectibles such as fine art, wine, sports memorabilia, stamps, guns and related equipment, comic books and action figures, model trains, rare books, and hundreds of others.”

MiniCo president and CEO Mike Schofield commented: “The high quality of the coverage combined with its affordability for the policyholder and ease of use for the agent makes MiniCo Collectibles Insurance an ideal solution for agents to offer to their personal lines clients, many of whom may have collections of valuable items that require specialized coverage.”

MiniCo Collectibles Insurance is offered nationwide in partnership with AXA Insurance Company, the only globally operating specialty art and collectibles insurance company offering tailor-made coverage solutions for private and corporate collections, museums, galleries and artists.
