Protecting your possessions - Fringe insurances

It is possible to insure yourself against almost any risk for a long- or short-term period.

It is quite common for footballers or ballet dancers to insure their legs, singers their voices and pianists or painters their hands. This kind of insurance is not particularly expensive for it is generally assumed to be low risk, unless in addition to their occupation the insured person indulges in some particularly hazardous activity: a dancing and singing entertainer with a passion for hang-gliding would be such a risk.

In addition to these rather exotic areas, however, there are more everyday risks which you can insure yourself against.

These policies are sometimes taken out through Lloyds of London, rather than the insurance companies.
