As we get closer to rounding out the dog days of summer, the insurance M&A market is also HOT! The continuing strength in insurance agency M&A activity remains steady due to consumer need for insurance as well as market and economy strength.

Agency sellers (current owners) are having valuations performed at record rates, and the results are high because of the sheer number of qualified and interested buyers, including private equity and national players. Buyers obviously want to purchase successful agencies only! Historically advantageous interest rates and positive multiple arbitrages are also driving asking prices up.
