TORONTO, ON, APRIL 21, 2020 /insPRESS/ — Apollo Insurance Solutions Ltd., (“APOLLO Exchange”) Canada’s largest online insurance marketplace, has partnered with Berkley Canada, a niche Specialty Insurer, to offer a bind online Life Agents Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance solution on the APOLLO Exchange platform.
The latest insurance solution to be added onto the APOLLO Exchange platform is for licensed life agents and licensed accident and sickness agents, with limits up to $2 million. Premium starts at $495, and brokers receive 20% commission. The product is live and available to APOLLO Exchange’s network of over 160 property and casualty brokerages.
“We saw a lot of demand for this product from our broker network, and our partners at Berkley Canada put together a really great digital product,” said APOLLO Exchange CEO Jeff McCann. “Berkley Canada has been a great partner of ours since we launched their first product, a Tech E&O package, last year — their dedication to the digital channel is admirable.”
As with every APOLLO Exchange product, the entire process, from quoting, binding coverage, and issuing policy documents is immediate, online, and paper free. In addition, life agents have the option to pay for the policy in 12 equal monthly payments, making the product more attractive from a business’ cash flow perspective.
“We are excited to be adding an additional product to the APOLLO Exchange Platform as it gives us the ability to provide our competitive Life Agents product in a fast, frictionless digital environment,” said Ashley Beales, Berkley Canada’s Senior Vice President of Specialty Insurance. “We look forward to seeing the additional value offering our Life Agents product on the APOLLO Exchange creates for our broker partners and insureds.”

APOLLO not only gives brokers more access to products, it also offers a new distribution channel and access to data for insurance carriers who partner with the APOLLO Exchange.
