Prestige home insurance

Are you aware of the true value of your home? Are you confident you know the cost of a full rebuild, or the cost of replacing all your belongings? Property underinsurance is a common problem. Total rebuild costs are often overlooked, leaving many high-value items without cover under “one-size-fits-all” insurance policies. Our prestige home insurance offers more.

Prestige car insurance

When purchasing a performance car, considering the engine size, model and interior are some of the first priorities. But, one of the biggest challenges can be finding suitable insurance. Standard insurance cover often falls short when premium or classic vehicles are involved.

Will Brexit impact Marsh Private Clients' ability to provide me with insurance?
Following the end of the transition period (currently scheduled for 31 December 2020), Marsh Private Clients will no longer be able to service policyholders who are based in the European Economic Area (EEA), unless they have a UK presence (UK bank account and UK address) and we can therefore provide our services to them in the UK.
