    Our history

    Beazley Group began life in 1986 as Beazley, Furlonge & Hiscox, which was bought out by Andrew Beazley and Nicholas Furlonge in 1992. Since then the company has grown steadily in terms of the risks we cover, the clients we serve and our geographic reach. Beazley today is a mature insurance business with a well diversified portfolio.
