Markel Corporation markets and underwrites specialty insurance products and programs to a range of markets. The Company has three segments of the specialty insurance marketplace: the Excess and Surplus Lines (E and S), the Specialty Admitted and the London markets. The E and S market focuses on hard-to-place risks and loss exposures that generally cannot be written in the standard market. E and S eligibility allows its insurance subsidiaries to underwrite loss exposures with policy forms and unregulated premium rates. The Company also writes business in the Specialty Admitted market. In addition, the Company writes business on both a direct and subscription basis in the London market.

Stifel Nicolaus research focuses on all market caps, but is a leader in small- and mid-cap research. The department is staffed predominately with industry professionals from outside Wall Street. In fact, approximately 50% of its analysts have hands-on work experience in the industry that they research. Stifel Nicolaus believes industry experience, its opportunistic approach, and broad market cap coverage drive excess returns and its award-winning franchise.
