Today we share with you STG’s October 2020 Independent Insurance Agency Sales Alert. As always, we’d like to give a nod to our in-house research and outreach groups, as well as our SEO program managers. They bring us invaluable potential opportunities by ever-so-diligently keeping their ears to the ground and honing in on finding buying opportunities for our interested buyers. Our teams are also assisted by our professional network of industry consultants and attorneys. Also, when a deal goes bad, it’s often due to broken financing. STG knows about broken deals immediately, and we have the financing practice behind us to ensure that our buyers always have access to lenders who work specifically in the insurance space.

Although we recognize that the US economy is enduring one of the most difficult challenges in recent history, we’re still seeing insurance industry growth. Why is there an increased national need for insurance coverage? Beneficial legislation and record low interest rates have encouraged an exorbitant number of people to either buy their first home or move somewhere new during the coronavirus pandemic. The average consumer in the United States now owns more assets that need to be insured, and this is especially true as millennials take the leap into home ownership.
The M&A market for insurance agencies continues to push upward with the strengthening of multiples, strong activity, and an excellent financial arbitrage by buying, combining, and reselling agencies. The seller’s market for independent agencies is still going strong and Private Equity continues to be a driver of that strength, with nearly 80% of the larger (over $5MM) reported transactions coming from Private Equity-backed firms.
When you join forces with STG you’re guaranteed access to the strongest array of M&A and financial tools and services available to support your acquisition, perpetuation, and operational needs in any part of North America.
