Alleghany Corporation

Alleghany’s objective is to create value through owning and managing operating subsidiaries and investments, anchored by a core position in property and casualty reinsurance and insurance.
We are managed by a small company staff which seeks out attractive investment opportunities, delegates responsibilities to competent and motivated managers, sets operating subsidiary goals, assists managers in the achievement of these goals, defines risk parameters and appropriate incentives and monitors progress against long-term objectives. The operating subsidiaries function in an entrepreneurial climate as quasi-autonomous enterprises.
