Swedish term or phrase: fullvärdesförsäkring
Here, I'm really after the difference in meaning of Helvärdeförsäkring and Fullvärdeförsäkring. The latter will be put in a separate question shortly.
I've come across definitions in Swedish, but have no idea which is which in the industry in English (e.g. I've seen absolute value insurance (in the US) and full-value insurance, as well as complete value insurance.

Here's an example:
Med fullvärdesförsäkring avses att egendomens hela värde är föremål för försäkring. Försäkringen gäller utan försäkringsbelopp.
(sorry, the contexts are very similar)

Explanation:
Please see previous answer to 'helvärdeförsäkring'

"Fullvärdeförsäkring innebär att det inte finns något försäkringsbelopp som utgör gräns för skadeersättningens storlek. …Helvärdeförsäkring innebär att ersättningen för skador begränsas till högst det belopp som anges i försäkringsbrevet."

And now, newby that I am, I find Helen's clarification, which renders my reference here (and previous answer) redundant. Plus gramail's entry, with which I concur - unlimited it is, and cover within a policy, rather than a separate policy per se.
