ACORD Carrier Mergers & Acquisitions: Major Transaction Value Analysis

16.05.24 AdvantageGo

Explore the Dynamics of Mergers and Acquisitions in the Insurance Sector. The re/insurance industry has seen a surge in mergers and acquisitions, but recent research indicates that serial acquirers and large deals are often prone to erode rather than generate long-term value.

Over the past decade, the insurance and reinsurance industry has witnessed a flurry of M&A activity, reshaping the landscape of carriers. Driven by soft market pricing, CEOs sought deals with peers as an alternative to significant organic growth.

While the current hard-pricing phase may favour organic growth over M&A, the inevitable softening phase will likely spur increased M&A activity. Against this backdrop, data-led M&A research becomes invaluable for CEO and board-level decision-making.

A ground-breaking study by ACORD, in partnership with AdvantageGo, Carrier Mergers & Acquisitions: Major Transaction Value Analysis, sheds light on the outcomes of major acquisitions in the industry. The study reveals a sobering statistic: only 52% of the largest transactions by insurance carriers of the past decade have created long-term value for shareholders.

Discover the insights from this research to inform strategic decisions and navigate the complexities of M&A in the insurance sector.
