Insurance Growth Report Charting the ebb and flow of insurance M&A Part 2/3
Following part one of our Insurance Growth Report, which presented a review of worldwide mergers and acquisitions, here we analyse transaction trends by region.
2019 saw another annual increase in global M&A activity in the insurance industry, with 419 deals completed worldwide representing a 10% increase on 2018. However, the second half of the year saw a steep drop in transactions in major markets – albeit from a high level. This trend was especially marked in Europe and Asia Pacific.
Against a backdrop of geo-political and macro-economic uncertainty, investor sentiment in the first half of 2020 will be one of heightened caution and we expect global deal volume to plateau as a result.
