All the good things in life come with a little risk. We should know.
Back in 1986 when we began, the US liability insurance market was in crisis. Things weren't looking good. Not the best time to start a business, you might think. But at Beazley we see every risk as an opportunity to do things differently.
So we took the plunge and started our business, with just a couple of second-hand desks and a handsome old hat stand.
Insurance is about risk, but it’s also about people.
We searched for the Industry's brightest sparks to join us. A diverse bunch, all looking for that rare thing in insurance: an adventure. We certainly found one.
We began putting our heads together to tackle our clients’ biggest challenges. And in a world fast becoming head-scratchingly complex, we set ourselves the goal to become the Industry's go to problem solvers. We've done things differently ever since. In an age of easy assumptions and talking big, we keep an open mind and listen more.
Persevering until we've found the right solution. Our quiet and boundless curiosity have seen us embrace all manner of risks: Boldly going further, from the bottom of the ocean to the surface of the moon.
So that’s our story, in a nutshell. The moral of the tale? Life’s a risky business. But by enabling our clients to explore, create and build a different world, we’re helping to make it a better one. And by striving to do the right thing rather than the easy thing, we’re shaping a brighter future for our people, our partners and the planet.
We definitely think that’s a risk worth taking.
