Why Markel’s Shareholders Love It so Much

On the ground at Markel’s 2024 annual shareholders’ meeting, BBAE CIO James Early and analyst Shaoping Huang share what makes Markel (NYSE: $MKL) such a cult favorite among its investors. Unabashedly following in the mold of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, Markel invests money (“float”) from insurance operations in public and private companies. But – also like Berkshire – its leaders spend relatively little time discussing numerical things at the meeting, and spend a lot of time discussing company culture, explaining why hiring smart, “A” players begets success, honoring standout employees, and, of course, showering their shareholders with corporate love. 

Markel is far smaller than Berkshire, but its shareholders love it just as much. Find out why in this video.
