What is high net worth insurance?
High net worth insurance is insurance for those who require a slightly higher level of protection against the theft and damage of their personal items. It could be that these individuals have a high net worth and therefore need extra protection because their general possessions are of a high value.

It is also useful for those who are at a higher risk, and may need insurance to cover their higher risk lifestyle. This would normally be people like high profile athletes, politicians or those in the public eye. Standard insurance policies are unlikely to cover the needs of high net worth individuals and therefore high net worth insurance protects them.
