2018 Insurance M&A Outlook The deal landscape continues to evolve

How will US tax reform and regulatory policy influence insurance M&A activity? What impact will rising valuations have? Should companies buy, invest, or partner in InsurTech? The 2018 insurance M&A outlook from Deloitte US examines the trends and challenges insurance executives should consider as they plan their M&A strategy for 2018 and beyond. 

An evolving M&A marketplace

What’s noteworthy about 2016 and 2017 is an evolving industry and M&A landscape that is setting the stage for a positive deal-making environment in 2018. Environmental conditions are ripe to continue the insurance M&A activity of 2017’s second half. Investor and consumer confidence is high; the US and global economies are improving; US tax reform was signed into law; interest rates are moving in the right direction; organic growth remains elusive; and available capital remains at an all-time high.

Even though sources of uncertainty remain, the 2018 deal volume is expected to be largely consistent with 2016 and 2017 as companies look to utilize M&A to achieve their strategic objectives.
