Specialty insurer...I like this position going forward many years compared to other insurers more heavily reliant on the personal automobile insurance. I think this because I believe autonomous vehicle will become reality in about 10 years time. And for those insurers dependent on people getting into accidents, this change will of course undercut their businesses.

I did a few day externship with Markel. Probaly one of the most shareholder-oriented companies out there. Excellent business model generating steady cash, and have one of the true great, value, long-term oriented investors in Tom Gayner managing the investments.

This is a steady stock that will likely outperform and mitigate risk in market turndowns. I really think they are just getting started and will continue outperform and compound year after year.
