Winning with permanent capital

The Markel Ventures business model is unique. Our goal is to 'buy, build, and hold.' A subsequent sale or exit is not part of our business model. Our companies are financed with permanent capital using little or no debt, providing management maximum operating flexibility.

What are we looking for?

In evaluating acquisition opportunities, we follow the same four-part checklist that Markel has used for decades.

  • Profitable businesses with good returns on capital
  • Talented management teams and a culture of integrity
  • Reinvestment opportunities and capital discipline
  • Fair prices

Today, when looking to enter a new industry, we are best suited to partner with businesses generating at least $25 million in annual cash flow
