Markel Ventures

Winning with permanent capital

At Markel Ventures we make permanent investments in businesses outside of the specialty insurance marketplace. 

Our focus is long term...really long term.  We do not sell our businesses nor do we use excessive debt.  Our principal goal is to build profitable enterprises that will endure as part of the broader Markel Corporation.  As a result, our management teams are empowered to make long-term decisions centered on customers and employees, not short-term results.
