A stable, sophisticated home for businesses

White Mountains drives value creation for its shareholders through its ownership and management of businesses and assets in the insurance and related financial services industries. Insurance is at our core and this deep expertise, combined with our aptitude for innovation, differentiates us. We seek to source and execute opportunistic, value-oriented acquisitions of sound businesses with strong owners and management teams.

Patient capital is our advantage

Unlike private investment firms bound by the time constraints of limited partnership models, White Mountains invests for the long-term in the businesses we own. We think like owners, not short-term financial engineers. Our overriding goal is superior growth in White Mountains’ intrinsic value per share over the long haul.

We have no “sell-by” dates or pre-determined exit strategies. Instead, we focus on giving owners and management teams the necessary support, tools, capital, incentives and freedom to run their businesses successfully.
