Apollo Syndicate Management Limited is an Independent specialist Insurer and Reinsurer with a team of talented and experienced professionals across a number of specialty lines. Apollo offers adaptable and flexible underwriting services at Lloyd’s and leads a number of London market consortia.

Apollo’s market-leading Underwriting talent has allowed the business to spearhead sharing economy initiatives such as ibott (“Insuring Businesses of Tomorrow, Today”)

We are a group of committed and passionate high-achievers who truly love where we work (and we know this because we asked everyone for their thoughts). Since formation in 2009 Apollo’s grown from an original team of 5, writing 2 classes, to a team of over 100 covering multiple classes.

We are able to make quick decisions based on our size and structure and our Underwriters are fully empowered to make decisions, which match the needs of each of our clients.


We value our clients and focus on building long term and personal relationships. We recognise each and every one is different with individual needs.

Our entire business is built around contribution, commitment and team effort. We are talent-focussed and aim to attract and retain the insurance industry’s best and brightest across the business.


We believe that talented and experienced professionals and an entrepreneurial culture encourage empowered Underwriting. Our experience and expertise enable us to select suitable risks in any rating environment and underwrite both small and large accounts.

Apollo’s aim is to build and grow a first-class, independently owned underwriting platform trading at Lloyd’s. We maintain a clear alignment and connection with capital providers and key staff responsible for delivering profits. 

Insurance is a ‘people business’– we continue to seek to attract, develop and retain people of the highest quality. Because building career paths for our teams and developing the business are equally important to Apollo.
