Markel Insurances

Creative and media

Markel has been a specialist insurer of companies operating in the creative and media space for over 25 years. We cover organisations from media agencies and production companies to publishers. We have a remit that extends from digital agencies and event organisers, through to freelance journalists and broadcasters.

The risks facing media organisations are challenging. The sector has evolved rapidly with the expansion of digital and social media marketing and publishing, which has changed how content is distributed and paid for.

We have been successfully underwriting risks in the sector for over 25 years, so we thoroughly understand the exposures that creative and media companies face.

Our insurance cover protects clients against legal liability and management risks, damage and loss of property and cyber threats.

More than just insurance cover

As part of these added-value services, clients also have access to a debt recovery helpline and a PR crisis management service, should the need arise.
