An internal audit by outside advisors from the Markel Corps troubled insurance bonded securities unit's loss reserve found no evidence that unit staff acted in bad faith in performing business convictions in the determination of reserves and providing related information at the end of 2017 and early 2018.  In December, the Richmond, Virginia-based insurer and reinsurer showed that its Bermuda-based Markel CATCo Investment Management Ltd. unit, which provides secured retrocessionary reinsurance, was investigated by US and Bermuda authorities over the loss reserves.

"Markel's external council has met the government authorities and reported the results of the internal review," Markel said in the statement. "The government agencies' investigations are ongoing and Markel continues to cooperate fully with them."
