We invest for the long term.

We manage our fixed-income investments to match the size and duration of our expected future insurance claims, while producing interest income. Our investments in equity securities generate long-term returns that will strengthen and grow Markel Group’s financial position and build shareholder value.

Four principles guide our equity investments.

Good returns on capital without using too much leverage

Reinvestment opportunities and capital discipline

Management teams with equal measures of talent and integrity

Pay fair prices
