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 65 covering 10 classes. We believe we offer a genuinely different approach and one we re fiercely proud, and protective, of. Our people are hand picked for their experience, their results and their character in the market. Everyone working with us is genuinely excited to join us. Because we are able to make quick decisions based on our size and structure, our Underwriters are fully empowered to make decisions, which match the needs of each of our clients. David Ibeson Chief Executive David Ibeson Chief Executive We value our clients in the same way as we value our team by recognising each and every one is different with individual needs. Our entire business is built around contribution, commitment and team effort. We support each other to achieve truly outstanding results. It s said that a team who plays together stays together so we ensure we celebrate success and developments. Apollo Underwriting teams write business in 10 main classes: Property Direct & Facultative Property Binding Authority Property Treaty Cargo & Specie Marine & Energy Liability Casualty / Liabilities Product Recall Energy Marine Hull Aviation Our aim at the start (when it was just a seed of an idea in 2009) was and still is to build and grow a first-class privately owned underwriting platform trading at Lloyd s. We maintain clear alignment and connection with capital providers and key staff responsible for delivering profits. Without our clients Apollo would not exist. Our primary focus is to add value at every opportunity during the Insurance, Reinsurance or Claims transaction. We believe Insurance is a people business built on relationships and we will continue to seek to attract, develop and retain people of the highest quality. We want to build career paths as well as our business at the same time. Our experience and expertise mean that we are able to manage the largest, most high-risk businesses, yet crucially, we remain small enough to be nimble, personable and show how we care about our clients.

Our Underwriters are established leaders in this market and travel extensively visiting clients and attending and speaking at global conferences in order to build and maintain their relationships. PRODUCT RECALL Companies providing consumer products or components all have a significant responsibility to supply a safe, working and quality product into the marketplace. Product Recalls are often in the headlines particularly in the automotive components and consumer products arena and have the real potential not only to ruin a Brand s reputation but to significantly impact the Balance Sheet as well. Most customers understand mistakes can occur even in the most conscientious and professionally managed organisations. Research repeatedly shows that the companies that command the deepest customer loyalty are those that, in such circumstances, are able to respond quickly, with empathy, honesty and responsibly. Whilst the Recall risk has always existed, in today s world where supply contracts in particular have become ever more demanding, the costs associated with dealing with a Product Recall, either directly or indirectly, can be huge. We believe every prudent manufacturer should confront the risk posed by a Product Recall and manage it as far as they are able.

Such a policy not only facilitates a smoother and more timely route to recovery but can also ensure an organisation has the means and support to defend itself, should that be required.

CLAIMS We understand the most important, and perhaps the only reason a client buys insurance is to have their claims paid quickly and with minimum fuss. A client wants to be protected, up and running and to be back in business as soon as possible if the unforeseen happens. You d expect highly experienced and technically qualified individuals to consider your claim. They do and they will. Between us we have decades of experience of multi-class insurances, and we are passionate about our Service. So what? Because, we re truly proud of our record of performing amongst the best of all Lloyd s Syndicates, in response times and accuracy.
