Insurance segments include Markel Global, Markel Specialty, Markel Wholesale, Markel International (including Syndicate 3000, Markel International Insurance Company Limited, and Markel Resseguradora do Brasil S.A.), and Markel Global Reinsurance.

One of Markel’s unique competitive advantages is the Markel Style which inspires our associates and guides our decision-making. Reflecting the Style in all business dealings has created a corporate culture in which integrity, transparency, honesty, sense of humor, disdain for bureaucracy, striving for a better way, teamwork, sharing success with others, and passion for what we do are non-negotiable. “Living the Style” is both expected and a high compliment.
