ASR Syndicate 2454 is the first African focused syndicate writing business at Lloyd’s and is managed by Apollo.

By becoming a Lloyd’s Syndicate, ASR gains access to the Lloyd’s brand strength and global reputation and gains access to Lloyd’s licenses across the world enabling more risk mitgation solutions for local and global business operating into and across Africa.

In return, ASR brings unique access to profitable African Risks, expertise in the African market and will lead consortia to deploy greater capacity for new business.
