The South African Antique Dealers Association (Saada) has appointed Artinsure as their specialist insurance product provider of choice so that South African dealers can receive benefits previously only available in Europe and the US.

"Antique dealers have an urgent need for world-class insurance benefits," says Gordon Massie, MD of Artinsure, partnered and underwritten by Hollard Insurance.

"We are proud to be appointed and commit to meeting the highest expectations of this specialist market.

"Antiques are unique and can rarely be replaced, which is why insuring this type of merchandise is very different from everyday retail stock.

"Antiques need expert evaluation and risk management. This requires high levels of expertise and understanding."

Krisen Govender, head of Hollard marketing and communications, says: "The identification of specific market needs and the design of products to meet them is an absolute focus for Hollard. We are committed to this approach of specialist product provision and we are delighted to strengthen our partnership approach in this deal with Artinsure - and by extension the members of Saada."

President of Saada, Jeremy Du Mughn, says: "As a body it is our role to set trading standards to reflect the top professionalism in the antique trade. We also seek to ensure that our members gain true benefits.

"We are pleased to have concluded this arrangement with Artinsure and look forward to many years of mutual benefit."
