Sponsorship

The Markel brand is founded on a simple but powerful principle: ‘bold ideas, honest actions’. It’s a philosophy that underpins everything that we do in the insurance marketplace, and it also describes our approach to sponsorship. We admire high achievement and noble effort: people who demonstrate integrity and honest endeavour, people who show gritty determination to overcome risks and succeed in unusual or demanding circumstances.

Sport is a natural fit with our brand and we have a growing range of sporting connections that complement Markel Style, the corporate philosophy defined by bold ideas, honest actions. Often there is a link with charity, as sport can be a very strong force for good, and we encourage any sporting initiatives that can help the community.

Opposite are some of our current activities in the sporting world.
