Global Insurance Industry Sees Increase in Value of M&A Deals, Says Timetric in Its New Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com23 Sep 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Emergence of merger and acquisition (M&A) rates in the insurance industry has made significant contribution to the world’s M&A environment.
In 2015, there was a 176% rise in the total value of deals: it increased from USD 74.2 billion to approximately USD 205 billion.
Insurance operators are affected by challenging market and economic conditions, and this leads to low investment returns and depressed premium growth. This tendency, in its turn, forces insurers to participate in M&A activities.
Challenging economic environment hit banks, as well. They experience capital constraints at the moment and that is why they focus on their core operations of divest/reduce stakes in insurance subsidiaries in order to raise capital.
M&A transaction related to run-off portfolios (in Europe and the USA in particular) are forecast to surge given the fact that insurers currently divest legacy insurance products which are capital-intensive.
Generation of value from legacy portfolios may pour significant sums of money into pockets of those insurers that specialize in it.
