About us

About us

Markel focuses on providing superior workers compensation insurance, and doing it better than anyone else in the industry. We also offer Businessowners Policies (BOP) in certain states. Our appetite consists of providing workers comp and BOP insurance for new businesses, main street businesses and artisan contractors.

We are committed to building a stable, long-standing relationship with our agents and policy holders. While other insurance markets may come and go, we have never left a state in which we were working with independent agents. Our history of profitability gives agents the confidence they need to stake their reputation on Markel as their small business insurance market.

Why Markel?

  • Ease of doing business
  • Proven financial stability
  • Long-term commitment
  • High customer retention of over 80% annually
  • ‘A’ rated paper
