What we do

Everything from insurance to houseplants and handbags.

A family of companies with a shared culture.

Markel Group is a diverse family of companies that includes everything from insurance to bakery equipment, building supplies, and more. The leadership teams of these businesses operate with a high degree of independence, while at the same time living the values that we call the Markel Style.

Our three-engine system.

Markel Group’s three interdependent engines of Insurance, Investments, and Markel Ventures form a system that provides diverse income streams, access to a wide range of investment opportunities, and the ability to efficiently move capital to the best ideas across the company. It’s a system uniquely equipped for long-term growth.


We serve customers by reliably and profitably underwriting hard-to-price complex risks.


We invest our durable and low-cost sources of capital in fixed income and public equity securities to generate long-term returns.

Markel Ventures

Our family of non-insurance companies is bound by shared values and a commitment to long-term success.
