Despite the unwelcome advance of COVID-19 and its growing impact on the global economy, the insurance mergers and acquisitions market activity is finishing out the first quarter of 2020 strong. Even as this global pandemic has had dire effects on many industries around the world, the insurance seller’s market continues to thrive. It is true that buyers are taking extra precautions to ensure that they make smart agency purchases and that agencies that are overvalued are sitting on the market for longer. The industry remains resilient, though, showing growth and profitability in a turbulent global economy.

Writing capacity in the P&C insurance market remains significant, bolstered by the flow of new capital into the marketplace. It’s important to note that the market is starting to harden. Despite experiencing significant catastrophic losses, the market couldn’t sustain rate increases across the board because of a flood of new capital in the insurance space.
