A look back from the Canadian Market Event in Toronto

See how we celebrated the Toronto Market event with these exclusive highlights. From the thrilling Crack the Code challenge by Wendel Clark, a former captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs,  to the exquisite Ice Wine tasting, our event was a memorable celebration of our Canadian partnerships and the Beazley brand.

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.
