Apollo partners with Munich Re Syndicate and Tokio Marine CC

Apollo is announcing its new Builders’ Risk Consortium in partnership with Munich Re Syndicate Limited and Tokio Marine HCC International. The new consortium, which went live earlier in 2024, builds on an established arrangement in which Apollo has partnered with MRSL since 2019 in a successful Hull collaboration.

Apollo already has a position in this sector, with the recent appointment of Kyu Byun from WTW strengthening its capabilities and enhancing its service to brokers and clients alike. The new consortium offers brokers lead line capacity of up to $75 million for each vessel.

“This new consortium offers Lloyd’s brokers a genuine alternative, giving them a new route to market for their producers. These are often highly complex and technical risks and we have a great team in place to service this exciting class, as well as our existing business. Kyu’s appointment, our cooperation with the surveying community, and the extra firepower that the new consortium brings means that Apollo and our partners in this venture are well positioned to take advantage of this exciting opportunity.” – Iain Henstridge, leader of Apollo’s Hull Class.

“I’m pleased our continued partnership with Apollo has enabled this new consortium. The global landscape remains a challenging environment, so we look forward to furthering the service we can provide to our valued clients.” – Dominick Hoare, Chief Underwriting Officer of Munich Re Specialty Group.

“We are pleased to be involved in this new and exciting consortium which not only complements our existing Builders Risks book, but provides economies of scale to all participants, dedicated expertise and an efficient solution to traditional placements.” – Simon Shrimpton, Head of Marine at Tokio Marine HCC International.
