Why Are We Here?

“A ship in harbour is safe; but that is not what ships are built for” - J A Shedd

La Playa creates a safe space for the risks that expand our vision, change our lives, and enable innovation and dreams. We believe in risk as a creative force; we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the bold and the brave, providing advice and protection to grasp life by the horns and live it to the full.

Too often we see, smart, creative people buying insurance that’s the wrong shape and the wrong size. We’re here to help you get the protection you need – on your terms. A boutique-sized, international specialist broker, we’re a powerhouse of expertise and globally capable – yet small enough to care deeply.

  • Specialist insurance designed for you and your world
  • Expert advice to make informed decisions – our intellectual capital is at your disposal
  • Real understanding – taking the time to really ‘get you’ and your priorities
  • Boutique-style service – a real person who knows you and gets things done
  • In your corner when it’s crunch time

What matters to us…
We believe taking good care of our staff bears fruit in the way they work with our clients.

We value:

  • Adventure – doing things with vision
  • Integrity – doing things right
  • Professionalism – doing things smart
  • Quality – doing things properly
  • Loyalty – doing things with mutual support
  • Respect – doing things thoughtfully
  • Fun – doing things with zest

About La Playa Fine Art

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

Our in-depth understanding of the unique risk exposures in the art world means we speak your language - and we can save you time and hassle in the event of a claim. Our expertise is backed up with efficient and highly personal service and our wealth of experience spans over 50 years.

Whatever your specialism, we’ll take a creative and innovative approach to structuring your Fine Arts insurance programme and select for you an insurer who demonstrates understanding and experience of your field.  We’ll support you with great advice - helping you manage your risks and make good decisions to protect your organization or collection. 

At La Playa, we’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective.
