We are building one of the world’s great companies.


To us, being a great company means that we help our customers, associates, and shareholders win. Because we believe that every person who comes into contact with Markel Group should be better off for having done so.

It’s a mission that’s more about who we are than what we do. It is why we try to shape the future for all it could be, rather than settling for the status quo. To pursue excellence in a world that often settles for less. To keep a sense of humor and enjoy what we do. To be honest and fair in all our dealings, and to offer quality products and services that exceed customer needs.

This is the Markel Style, and it's the foundation of who we are and what we're here to do. We are not perfect, but these values powered our growth from a regional transportation insurer to a global Fortune 500 family of companies and investments. And these values will inspire generations of our people to try to keep this mission alive... now and forever.
