Our first 25 years

Beazley Group began life in 1986 as Beazley, Furlonge & Hiscox, which was bought out by Andrew Beazley and Nicholas Furlonge in 1992. Since then the company has grown steadily in terms of the risks we cover, the clients we serve and our geographic reach. Beazley today is a mature insurance business with a well diversified portfolio. During this time we have weathered some of the toughest times the Lloyd’s market has seen in more than three centuries and our underwriting operations have an unbroken record of profitability.
