Our philosophy

Our win-win-win philosophy means our employees win by creating fulfilling careers, our customers win by finding protection against life’s biggest risks, and our shareholders win by earning good returns on their capital. This company was born from the belief that life’s greatest ambitions shouldn’t fade in the wake of all of the things that could go wrong.


Our culture is guided by a creed we call the Markel Style, which ensures that our greatest qualities endure across the generations of people who have been a part of Markel.
