“At Apollo, we believe in empowering the broker channel,” says Apollo CEO Jeff McCann. “With this product from our partners at BI&I, our broker users can spend less time on paperwork and more time building relationships. This is an interesting product because it will be offered standalone to start, and then incorporated into our other packages. By building more mono-line products we hope to make it easier each day for a broker to serve their clients.”

HSB BI&I is one of several carriers that offer their products on the Apollo Exchange.

Apollo Exchange 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 Exchange. 

“We are more than just technology or distribution with our insurer partners — we are consultants who provide insights into the performance of their products that insurers have never had before,” says McCann. 

Where traditionally, application data has been locked in outdated PDF application forms, Apollo Exchange is able to collect, analyze, and report data insights back to insurers. That data can be used to optimize more accurate risk rating and pricing.

“It is important for us to adapt to changing expectations of buyers and the next generation workforce,” says McCann. “Apollo Exchange takes a whole new approach by combining technology, insurance capacity, and content marketing services.”
