We're big on business, whatever the size, across a range of industries.


For a professional firm to operate efficiently and with confidence, having the right insurance cover is essential. We provide a range of solutions designed for provincial chartered, certified and management accountancy practices.

Architects and engineers

We have an in-depth knowledge of modern-day practices in this sector, and our solutions have been created for architects and consultant engineers who have simple or complex requirements.

Biomedical and life science

Markel UK’s insurance has been tailored to cover the unique challenges faced by the biomedical and life sciences industry. 

Care organisations

Our comprehensive package policy caters for a wide range of care providers, social enterprises, and not-for-profit organisations, with covers tailored to meet the needs of organisations that provide services to children and vulnerable adults.

Charities and community groups

Markel UK insures a wide range of organisations, including counselling, advocacy and support groups, nurseries, playgroups and after-school clubs, as well as community, social and neighbourhood groups, youth centres, and children's clubs.


The construction sector has a unique set of insurance risks. Choosing the right type of cover is important to support a well-managed working environment whilst also satisfying regulatory requirements and contract conditions.

Creative and media

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.


As a specialist in the care sector, we can provide tailored solutions for specialist schools, playgroups and nurseries.

Housing associations

Housing associations are especially susceptible to claims involving incidents with tenants. Our insurance solutions provide comprehensive cover for incorporated and non-incorporated risks. Our expertise and experience help us identify and deal with the legal liabilities faced by all parties.


Markel UK's insurance solutions cater for charitable and not-for-profit organisations that do not deal directly with children or vulnerable adults. Clients might include professional and trade bodies, consultancies and training organisations.

Professional services

Our experience in delivering innovative insurance solutions for professional firms means we can cover a wide variety of professions, including business and management consultants, HR professionals, and training providers.


Operating in an industry subject to heavy regulation, it’s crucial for surveyors and estate agents to choose the right level of expert insurance.


Markel UK supports technology companies with the reassurance of insurance by keeping it simple, whilst also being able to look at risks with more complex or bespoke requirements.
