Markel, the insurance arm of Markel Group, has introduced a professional indemnity (PI) offering tailored for the Australian market. The newly launched coverages are designed to address professional and financial risks, with a particular focus on sectors such as renewable energy.

This initiative marks the latest step in Markel’s significant expansion efforts in Australia. The company, headquartered in the United States, has been actively bolstering its presence in the region. In September, Markel demonstrated its commitment by establishing offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

Rory Morison, Managing Director for Markel International in Australia, highlighted the strategic importance of opening multiple offices simultaneously. “We wanted to demonstrate our commitment and show that we are serious about establishing a strong presence in Australia,” explained Morison, who is based in Melbourne. “By opening offices in key cities, we are affirming our long-term commitment to serving the Australian market.”

Andrew McMellin, Markel’s London-based Managing Director for Wholesale International, outlined the company’s strategy in an interview with Insurance Business. The focus is on leveraging Markel’s expertise and global resources to provide innovative insurance solutions tailored to the unique needs of Australian businesses.

With the launch of the professional indemnity offering and the expansion of its local presence, Markel aims to solidify its position as a trusted insurance provider in Australia while delivering value to clients across various industries, including the rapidly growing renewable energy sector.
