ITUS - The Story of the surname
In Greek mythology Itus was initially a simple mortal who had great admiration for Apollo. He mastered the sword like no other and had never lost a fight. When times were moving, the other gods harbored increasingly jealous of Apollo, which then Itus chose to protect him. For this purpose, Apollo gave Itus two swords, called Xenious and Novelty. Itus protected Apollo and won a fight with the sword against the God Ares. As Apollo then asked Zeus to make Itus to God, he agreed to this, because he did not want to go against a mortal who had slain a god. Deified, Apollo released him from his oath and Itus could henceforth stand up for the innocent and defenseless and protect them.
In our sense, as an independent insurance broker ITUS stands for Insurance broker Technology based for Unique Solutions.
We always aim to advise you the best way within the meaning of God ITUS, to protect your interests and to protect and stand up for their rights in the insurance sector.
