Markel into its golden years
TORONTO, Ont. – Over the past 50 years, many insurance companies have come and gone in the trucking industry, which makes the Markel Insurance Company of Canada story that much more compelling.
“This is all we do,” says president and chief executive officer Mark J. Ram referring to Markel’s exclusive truck focus. “We’re not a jack of all trades, we’re a master of one.”
He says many insurers swoop in to trucking attracted by the large premiums and cut rates without understanding the costs of doing business.
“Trucking is typically considered an exotic line of insurance best described as volatile,” Ram adds. “When it goes bad it goes very bad.”
He explains by the time these fly-by-nighters realize how much money they’re losing, they often withdraw from trucking insurance, forcing truck operators to scramble for coverage.
