Why We're Visiting Markel

On Monday's MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool Germany analyst Matt Koppenheffer jump into Markel (NYSE: MKL  )  and the upcoming Foolish visit to the company's HQ.

This week, Matt, David Hanson, and a few other Fools will travel to Markel and sit down with Chief Investment Officer Tom Gayner. Matt says one of the things he'll focus on is Gayner's investing history at Markel -- over a decade's worth of wisdom. He'll also be asking about expansion opportunities for the company and what has changed for Gayner over his investing tenure, especially when looking at investing in banks.

recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee that its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible.

    I am excited to hear about TMF visiting Markel. I discovered the company a few months ago and it seems solid. Strong financials, a niche market, and a great management team is a winning formula.

    The corporate governance appears very strong as well and the company is extremely shareholder-friendly. The letters, reports, and presentations to investors are straight forward and easy to understand.

    Look forward to the recap.

    Regards, Mike
