Investments Weigh on Markel’s Results in Third Quarter

Brett Horn, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Brett Horn, CFA |

Negative marks on the investment portfolio weighed on Markel in the third quarter, and we think results this year support our view that Markel's investment approach carries some risk. However, the company's underwriting performance was solid. We will maintain our $1,203 fair value estimate and no moat rating.

Business Description

Markel's primary business is property and casualty insurance, and the company focuses primarily on specialty lines, ranging from areas such as executive liability to commercial equine insurance. The acquisition of Alterra in 2013 added substantial reinsurance operations, which now account for a little over 15% of premiums. The company uses capital generated by its insurance operations to buy noninsurance operations in diverse areas, such as bakery equipment manufacturing and residential homebuilding.
