Welcome to the May edition of the Springtree Group Insurance Agent and Broker Sales Alerts. National M&A activity so far this year is trending lower than average when compared to the last five years. The seller’s market for independent agencies continues to be prevalent, with an ongoing buyer’s market in the captive arena.

For those seeking insurance agencies for sale, Springtree Group uses a multi-level and joint endeavor to develop the most suitable acquisition targets in combination with local market intelligence to which only the client has access. In addition, we provide our clients with additional tools to access the 90 percent of sellers that are not openly and publicly communicating their intention to sell.
