Our Philosophies

At Virtus, we believe that our agency partners are the lifeblood of our company, and that the opportunity to work FOR retail agents is a privilege that must not be taken for granted. Our philosophies revolve around RELATIONSHIPS and RETENTION, as opposed to premium levels and production requirements. We understand that our success as a leading wholesale broker is contingent on our agency lifeblood, and we must repeatedly EARN our agents trust in order for long-term partnerships to THRIVE.
