La Playa: Insurance with Intelligence®

Property & Equipment Insurance

The definition of 'property' in the arts and entertainment varies widely - from digital assets to hired-in equipment to props, set, wardrobe, merchandize on tour and sheet music.  We'll guide you on how much to insure for so that you avoid the trap of under-insurance, which could cost you dearly...

What if...

  • You hire-in professional kit that gets damaged during a performance or rehearsal?
  • Your venue is flooded and the wardrobe you hired gets ruined?
  • A musician loses their sheet music while on tour - or worse, their instrument?

What's covered?

  • Any equipment you list - just talk to us about your needs
  • All risks (including accidental damage)
  • No upper limits - you can insure for as much as you like
  • Fraudulent hire cover - if you lend out your kit

Earthquake Cover is normally excluded in some states, so it's important to check whether you need a separate policy.

Flood Insurance hit the headlines after Superstorm Sandy.  We can help you protect your assets and income from losses caused by a flood (which includes seepage and backup of water). If you're are located in a high hazard flood zone, you'll need to purchase the FEMA plan and may even need excess flood coverage too.

We can also help with Crime Insurance, which protects your organization against theft of money by staff - acting alone or in collusion with third parties.

Property & Equipment Insurance

We can help with insuring...

Property: computers, audio visual equipment, offices

Consequential Loss: protects income streams during physical and technological disruptions (fire, flood, power & telecommunications failure)

General Liability: cover for compensation payments arising from damage to third party property or personal injury

Workers' Compensation: for injury and illness to employees and freelancers

Errors & Omissions: helping to defend you against allegations of libel, slander, infringement of copyright, breach of confidentiality

Directors' & Officers' Liability: protecting decision-makers against alleged mismanagement of the organization

Travel & Touring: trip cancellation, medical expenses, passport replacement, loss of baggage

Specialist Cancellation Insurance: cover against financial loss as a result of cancellation, abandonment, postponement or re-scheduling of an event. As an artist manager, you can opt to insure your highest earning artists/authors with a “friends and family” type policy – entirely flexible and designed to cover areas where your income is most vulnerable - without breaking the bank. Some problems are worth losing sleep over. We believe insurance isn’t one of them. More >
