Our Purpose

QBE - enabling a more resilient future

At QBE we’re driven by our purpose of enabling a more resilient future – helping those around us build strength and embrace change to their advantage.

We’ve been cultivating resilience since 1886, when our founders started a marine insurance company to give early pioneers a safeguard against uncertainty.

Today, we’re still giving our customers confidence to explore, innovate and take measured risks, secure in the knowledge they’re covered by a strong insurer. 

For our communities, our purpose drives us to build resilience and enrich lives.  We are incredibly proud of our global disaster relief partnerships with Red Cross and Save the Children, through which we are investing to improve the capacity of local communities to prepare, anticipate, respond and recover from disasters.

Our approach to sustainability forms an essential part of our ability to deliver on our purpose and make a positive and impactful contribution to the environments, economies and communities in which we operate.

Our Vision

To be the most consistent and innovative risk partner

At QBE, we’re striving for greater consistency across everything we do. Our aim is to do things more consistently than our competitors, whether it’s in the experience we provide our customers and partners, the performance of our business or the values that connect our people.

Innovation represents our focus on continuous improvement and growth. This includes developing new and innovative products and experiences and continually evolving to make it easier to do business with us.

We believe being the most consistent and innovative risk partner will see us build the strongest partnerships with customers and partners but, importantly, it will also see us deliver more value.

We have six strategic priorities that will help us deliver on our vision.
