Why we exist

Our vision

To become, and be recognised as, the highest performing specialist insurer.

To achieve this we have developed the know-how to underwrite and manage complex insurance for profit which is embedded in our processes and enshrined within our culture and approach to doing business. We apply this know-how to everything we do.

Just as importantly, we seek to maintain an environment that makes working at Beazley challenging and enjoyable. Combined with our focus on talent management, this has enabled Beazley to attract and retain people who rank among the best insurance professionals in the world.

Our open, collegial and collaborative culture means our clients and brokers interact with entrepreneurial underwriters who give straight answers and make decisions quickly.

For our shareholders, Beazley aims to deliver sector leading returns on equity with relatively low volatility. The key to this performance over time is the balance of Beazley’s portfolio across specialist classes driven by different cycles. This enables us to target an average combined ratio of 90% with low volatility and to underwrite more premium and have more invested assets per dollar of capital than our peers.
