Independent Insurance is to sponsor the Grosvenor House Art and Antiques Fair for the third year running.

One of the world's top art and antiques events, the fair, which will run from June 13 to 19, is expected to bring 20,000 collectors to London.

Dave Parry, Independent's high net worth account manager, said: “Working with brokers, as well as the top surveyors and valuers, we can bring together a protection programme to suit every type of collector.”

Independent insures about 10% of those featured in The Sunday Times' recent list of Britain's 1,000 richest people.
