National insurance M&A activity so far this year has been robust, on par with 2017. Access to sellers is often difficult because open exposure of the desire to sell can be a concern for sellers, due to the impact that information could have on insurance carriers (markets), employees, clients and the competition. Most consulting firms in this space report that only approximately 10% of all M&A deals are publicly announced and openly distributed.
Our sources for potential selling opportunities come through broken financing deals, telemarketing activities, the STG research team, direct contact with sellers and sell side business brokers. This pipeline is supplemented by our network of consultants, attorneys, CPAs, bankers, DOIs, VC and PEGs. STG provides you with the broadest insight available into new buying opportunities in the insurance space.
