Frequently Asked Questions
What is the biggest issue being independent agents?
The biggest problem independent agents run into is having binding authority. Without the ability to bind a policy, agents are forced to delay coverage and risk the possibility of losing potential customers.
Do I own my book of business?
Yes! Altus Affiliates and Partnership agencies always maintain 100% ownership of their business.
What is the difference between the Affiliate and Partnership agencies?
An Affiliate is a new to medium-sized agency looking for carrier access and business development implementation. A Partnership is for larger agencies with multiple producers and direct appointments looking to capitalize on profit sharing and maximum business growth. Our goal is to get all our Affiliates to this level.
Can I have carrier appointments outside of Altus?
Yes, but with our extensive knowledge and partnerships, it makes sense in most cases to move everything with Altus to increase your compensation and profit.
Is there a cost to separate from Altus?
No. We designed our contracts and systems to make them the most agent-friendly model without the hidden caveats of many of the other carrier access companies in the market.
How do we get started with Altus Market Access?
The first step is to fill out an Agency Profile sheet and then review the Altus Market Access Contract. Then, our team will contact you and review your application.
What commissions will I receive?
Commissions vary by carrier and product line. By leveraging the volume of our network, we’re often able to offer commission levels greater than what an agent would receive if they were directly appointed. Contact our sales team to get a current commission schedule.
Do you have non-standard markets?
Yes. Although we exclusively focus on preferred line business, Altus knows that agencies also need carriers to fit the non-standard markets.
