About QBE Insurance Group

Our underlying business strategy is to maintain operations in the key global insurance markets and, where possible, to be a lead underwriter for selected lines of business.

QBE's strategy of diversification by product and geographical exposure is fundamental to managing our insurance and reinsurance risks and has been a vital ingredient in the Group's success. We have developed a unique QBE culture which is based on six core values and effective risk management practices and controls.

We aim to grow the business through our existing extensive networks and acquisitions of insurance businesses, portfolios and teams of underwriters that meet our stringent criteria for minimum return on equity and EPS accretion in the first year of acquisition. QBE Group has successfully delivered more than 135 acquisitions since our first acquisition in 1982 and has grown substantially over the last 10 years. QBE's gross written premium was US$16.3 billion in 2014.
