Markel Latin America property

Our focus is on proportional property and Cat XL programmes, working with selected brokers and cedants, and we have worked with clients to improve the quality of the information in their property portfolios. Our expertise goes beyond the regional insurance praxis.

We conduct holistic analysis of our portfolios, taking advantage of our knowledge of local construction methodologies, hazard studies, and engineering practices. This understanding is an important component of our operation, which complements the use of state-of-the-art cat modelling tools.

Our exposure management matches Markel’s conservative reserving methodology that has been tested in past worldwide events.
