Apollo was launched in 2009 to provide clients and brokers an agile and entrepreneurial insurance partner. The Apollo name recognised the success of one of its founding investors Neil Armstrong, who in 1969 was the first person to land on the moon. Along with Jim Hays and our founders, Neil saw the opportunity to build a differentiated service provider at Lloyd’s.
Today, Apollo is a team of more than 200 colleagues, servicing clients, partners and brokers from across the globe through its unique augmented underwriting approach.
We continue to expand into new areas to best service our clients, creating meaningful opportunities for today and in future.
