The May edition of Springtree Group’s Sales Alerts publication is live! We are excited by the activity across the US as it continues to increase when compared to insurance M&A averages from the past five years. Even more exciting is the evidence that any negative impacts caused by the pandemic have begun to ease.

Recently, strategic buyers have wisely been using this time to search aggressively for independent insurance agencies to add to their portfolio. Because the acquisition market is so ultra-competitive right now, successful buyers are those who demonstrate the right combination of effective strategy and the ability to act quickly.

When working with Springtree Group, this process is a multi-level, joint endeavor that immediately becomes more successful. The local market intelligence of our buyers combined with STG’s principled national approach and tools (including seller broker administration, internal and external research functions, and other proprietary tools) mean that we are able to reach a huge percentage of the market  that is hidden from the public for confidentiality reasons.
