Insurance Technology M&A Deals: Who Will Win?
The insurance technology sector is seeing an increasing number of mergers, acquisitions, and strategic investments — driven by advantages for vendors (which can offer an extensive portfolio of solutions) and by insurers’ unending need for more data and more powerful analytic capabilities. This report includes an exclusive listing of the 30 noteworthy transactions over the past four years.
The past two years have seen an uptick in the number of noteworthy transactions.
“There is much more activity on the property/casualty side of the industry than the life/health side. Many of the transactions focus on claims processes and or claims data. Distribution, underwriting, and pricing are also well represented,” says Donald Light, a research director with Celent’s Insurance practice and author of the report. “Insurance technology mergers, acquisitions, and strategic investments will not abate in the foreseeable future. The interest of private equity firms in this sector and the performance of certain publicly traded insurance technology firms make it likely that ample capital will be available to finance transactions.”
