National insurance M&A activity so far this year has been robust, outperforming 2016. A number of national insurance brokerage houses reported the closing of significant deals in the last 30 days. Notably, this list includes the sale of the Wells Fargo insurance operations to USI.
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 report that only 10 percent of all deals are publicly known.
Our sources for potential selling opportunities come through broken financing deals, our telemarketing activities, STG in-house research activities, 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. Springtree Group (STG) provides you with the broadest insight available into new buying opportunities in the insurance space.
