The Beazley Difference

BEING BOLD

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 thea world, to the first commercial lunar vehicle to operate on the moon - we boldly go where others won’t.

STRIVING FOR BETTER

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.

DOING THE RIGHT THING

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.

Claims Examples

Online media - Copyright infringement claim

An insured who publishes articles and photos on a website has a higher volume of copyright infringement claims given the nature of their business. The insured was sensitive about eroding numerous deductibles by hiring counsel to defend them. We worked with the insured to allow them to do the initial contact and investigation with the claimant/claimant’s counsel, and many of the claims were resolved without the need for counsel.  When counsel was necessary, we worked with the insured to retain counsel of their choice after negotiating rates.
