Hello and welcome to the latest episode of the Leadership In Insurance Podcast where this week we are lucky enough to be joined by Jeff Radke, CEO and Co-Founder, Accelerant.

We had a great conversation this week where we discussed a wide variety of topics such as:


  • The attraction of the MGA model as an entrepreneur
  • Is the MGA market a scapegoat?
  • Accelerant's longer-term capacity commitment
  • How Accelerant has members instead of customers, and how this perspective fosters positive relationships and reminds the team, 'we are only successful if they are successful'
  • Capacity provision as an investment form
  • The benefits of a diversified portfolio
  • Short-term-ism in insurance
  • Do we suffer from a short-term view?
  • The importance of clarity and ownership in a long term member relationship
  • The difficultly for a publicly-traded company to think on a long enough term to drive true innovation
  • 5-year thinking, and asking how can we be most successful in 2026?
  • Over investing time in development, as opposed to money
  • Accelerant's software Insightful
  • Why build software rather than buy?
  • Creating a member user board
  • The real value in data being making connections
  • The relationship dynamics with members
  • What makes a good member MGA for Accelerant?
  • The importance of being underwriting driven
  • Customer centricity
  • Is going full-stack worth it?
  • What's next for Accelerant? Expansion into Canada and beyond!
