Company Description

Markel Corp. is a financial holding company. It markets and underwrites specialty insurance products and programs. The company operates through three segments: Excess and Surplus Lines, Specialty Admitted, and London Insurance Markets. The Excess and Surplus Lines segment writes property and casualty insurance outside of the standard market for hard-to-place risks, including catastrophe-exposed property, professional liability, products liability, general liability, commercial umbrella, and other coverage tailored for unique exposures. The Specialty Admitted segment writes risks that, although unique and hard-to-place in the standard market must remain with an admitted insurance company for marketing and regulatory reasons. The underwriting units in this segment write specialty program insurance for well-defined niche markets, personal & commercial property, liability coverages, and worker's compensation insurance. The London Insurance Market segment writes specialty property, casualty, professional liability, equine, marine, energy, and trade credit insurance and reinsurance on a worldwide basis. The company was founded by Samuel A. Markel in 1930 and is headquartered in Glen Allen, VA.
