The Beazley Difference


Freedom lies in being bold. We dare to be different and seek bold possibilities to create more innovative, fair and satisfying outcomes for our clients, brokers and employees. From insuring the highest building in the world, to the first commercial lunar vehicle to operate on the moon - we boldly go where others won’t.


Good is a start, but we go all-out for better.  A driven community of individuals relentlessly push the needle and creating value. From launching the market’s first dedicated ESG syndicate to the establishment of our business unit focusing on designing digital insurance solutions, we pride ourselves on always going above and beyond.  Simply put, at  Beazley we go to 11.  


Acting with integrity in a straightforward, decent way is instinctive. Open and honest with others, we show respect and empathy however challenging the situation – demonstrated by our multi-award winning claims team.  Doing the right thing makes for a fair-minded, rewarding environment and makes work and life better for all.

Examples or Scenarios

  • Ransomware embedded within Automatic Voltage Regulator software could prevent generators from providing power. Maximum speed is reduced to a level that is insufficient for the tide resulting in the ship running aground. 
  • Malware propagates from an IT system to a vessel’s computer corrupting the software which runs the integrated bridge system. This results in the auto pilot not following correct track. 
  • A disgruntled employee embeds malware in the Electronic Chart Display & Information System software update causing it to lose reference, resulting in the vessel running aground. 
  • The assisted collision Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (VHF/GPS/AIS) is corrupted or alerts overridden meaning there is insufficient time to take avoiding action.
