Apollo seeks to form long term Strategic Partnerships with organisations that share its values and ambition of delivering a profitable business within the Lloyd’s franchise.

The Strategic Partner benefits from Apollo’s expertise in establishing and managing syndicates at Lloyd’s as well as a low cost entry to the Lloyd’s market brand, financial strength and licenses.  The Strategic Partnership leverages the strengths and resources of both parties to deliver long term sustainable profit.

Apollo entered into its first Strategic Partnership in 2021 with the legacy experts Compre with the launch of Strategic Partner Syndicate 1994.
