Market Update: Insurance – Q3 2021
Global M&A activity in the Insurance industry remained on record pace during the third quarter of 2021. Q3 activity outpaced that of Q2 with a strong rise in Insurtech transactions. Specifically, 40+ M&A transactions occurred within the Insurtech space in Q3, one of the highest deal counts in history.
The third quarter recorded 282 completed M&A deals in the broader Insurance industry. Deal volumes and valuations continue to increase in 2021, thanks to the ongoing adoption of cutting-edge technologies within the ecosystem driving reduced costs, as well as increased operational efficiencies and profitability. The M&A environment is expected to remain robust throughout Q4, most likely closing the year with a record number of transactions closed and capital raised.
