Built for Independent Agents

Altus Market Access was founded to bridge a huge gap by connecting independent insurance agents with the smoothest and most successful way toward building a thriving agency. We believe that agency entrepreneurs deserve to have it all; powerful compensation, cutting edge technology and all the support you need to achieve what defines a profitable and growing agency.

At Altus Market Access we understand that not all agencies are created equal, so we designed our business model with you in mind. Our contracts are tailor made for our agents to meet you exactly where you are in your career and take you where you want to go. We cater to what we believe are the three levels of an agency.

#1 – A producer who is ready to start out on their own and take the entrepreneur jump to building your own agency. #2 – A small agency looking for more carrier access or higher compensation as well as the tools and professional advice to take your agency to the next level. #3 – A larger agency with multiple producers looking for the maximum in compensation, profit-sharing, direct appointments and key management and growth tools. At Altus we have you covered.

Creating long standing relationships is our priority and we are committed to your success. The industry is evolving, let’s make sure you are on the right side of insurance evolution and join forces with us as we change the game.
