Independent Insurance Agency Sales Alerts – November 2016 Edition

Springtree Group is pleased to present this excerpt from the November edition of our Insurance Agent Sales Alerts publication, offered exclusively to STG Registered Buyers. Our sources for potential opportunities for you come through our in-house and external research groups, custom built out-bound telemarketing programs, and direct contact by and to sellers. This pipeline is supplemented by our large network of sell-side business brokers, industry consultants, attorneys, and lending underwriters, as well as broken financing deals. STG provides you with the broadest insight available into new insurance agency buying opportunities.

The M&A market conditions remain very active within the insurance distribution sector. Insurance Journal’s recently released Q1 2016 M&A activity statistics revealed that the first quarter of 2016 was the second most active quarter for M&A transactions in the past 10 years. All indications are that these tendencies should continue for the foreseeable future, as aggressive Private Equity backed buyers continue to drive the market. It is also no secret that these trends are in turn also driving up overall agency valuations.
