Markel International (MINT) underwrites a diverse portfolio of property, casualty and marine insurance and reinsurance business on a world-wide basis. We are a division of the Markel Corporation, which markets and underwrites speciality insurance products and programmes to a variety of niche markets. In each of these markets we seek to provide quality products and excellent customer service so that we can be a market leader. Our financial goals are to earn consistent underwriting profits and superior investment returns to build shareholder value.
● 'Markel Style' is how we do business; it's our vision and values, our code of behaviour, and it governs all our actions.
● Markel has a commitment to success. We believe in hard work and a zealous pursuit of excellence while keeping a sense of humour. Our creed is honesty and fairness in all our dealings.
● The Markel way is to seek to be a market leader in each of our pursuits. We seek to know our customers' needs and to provide our customers with quality products and service.
● Our pledge to our shareholders is that we will build the financial value of our company. We respect our relationship with our suppliers and have a commitment to our communities.
● We are encouraged to look for a better way to do things... to challenge management. We have the ability to make decisions or alter a course quickly. The Markel approach is one of spontaneity and flexibility. This requires a respect for authority but a disdain of bureaucracy.
● At Markel we hold the individual's right to self-determination in the highest light, providing an atmosphere in which people can reach their personal potential. Being results-oriented, we are willing to put aside individual concerns in the spirit of team work to achieve success.
● Above all, we enjoy what we are doing. There is excitement at Markel, one that comes from innovating, creating, striving for a better way, sharing success with others...winning.
