As we arrive at the halfway mark of 2022, we are taking a hard look at the M&A data from the first half of the year. What we’ve determined so far is that insurance merger and acquisition activity has had little to no effect on interest rate increases.
With so much activity still bustling in the insurance space, we must ask ourselves what factors are at play. Increased demand from the Private Equity Group sector and a phenomenon that’s being touted as the Silver Tsunami (an upcoming wave of retirement among Baby Boomers in the insurance industry) mean that financing options are readily available to interested buyers.
Jumping into the insurance sector as a new agency owner is a fantastic way to become a first-time business owner or to add to your existing portfolio because insurance is a necessity even during turbulent times. Knowing you’d like to dip your feet into the insurance pool as a new owner means you need an intermediary with extensive experience that is honed in on the insurance industry. Springtree Group is among the first to know when an agency hits the market.
