TERRORISM: ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE INSURED?
Since the recent dreadful attacks on our countries, we have all been made painfully aware of the cruel reality that is terrorism.

While we would not want to contribute to any sense of panic, we do feel it wise to stipulate here that merchandise, works of art and other valuables are not insured against an act of terrorism. This unfortunately means that if anything were to happen due to such an event, you are simply not insured, as global insurance policies (jewellery and art) generally tend to exclude terrorism.

Insurance policies define an act of terrorism as follows: “an act, including the use of force or violence, of any person or group(s) of persons, whether acting alone or on behalf of or in connection with any organisation(s), committed for political, religious or ideological purposes including the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public in fear for such purposes.”

So what should you do in order to be insured?
Our advice? Add an amendment to your insurance policy to extend the cover. Or alternatively, you could of course always take out separate terrorism insurance, tailored specifically to your needs.

UNATTENDED VEHICLE? WATCH OUT!
You were only gone for five minutes! Five minutes where you left your car unattended…what are the odds of disaster striking right at that moment? And now you discover that the valuables you were transporting are not covered by your insurance. Why not? Because you were gone for five minutes, and left your vehicle unattended…

This is one of the exclusions in your insurance policy. Jewellers Block policies around the globe do not cover valuable items when left in an unattended vehicle, whichever the reason of absence may be: a quick bathroom break at a petrol station, the buying of a sandwich, leaving to pay for petrol, etc. This is why anyone whose job it is to transport these kinds of items from A to B is advised to carefully plan their itinerary and to remain vigilant at all times.

Thinking of extending your policy? A wise decision
Are you looking for more extensive coverage? Give us a call so that we can analyse the possibility to cover this specific type of risk.

How long have you worked at Anglo Belge?
I feel like I’ve been working here my entire life, that’s how friendly the atmosphere is. In reality, though, I started on February 1st, 2016.

Where did you work before joining Anglo Belge?
I worked in Antwerp’s diamond district for eight years, the last three years of which I was in charge of buying and selling diamonds across Europe for Beladamas.

What made you decide to work for Anglo Belge?
There were several reasons:
- First of all there was the possibility to move abroad, which is something
   I’ve always wanted to do;
- I was looking for a new challenge;
- and one of my best friends works for Anglo Belge.

What is the biggest change within your job?
I would say the responsibility we have towards our clients.
