Host: Karl Hersch, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
In today’s new normal, insurers are likely to redefine the strategic role of M&A. How will these new conditions influence companies’ M&A and growth decision-making? We’ll discuss:
- How to use rapid scenario planning to identify relevant aspects of M&A strategy, while redefining new areas of focus to provide a basis for decision-making.
- How organizations should consider deal-related actions to respond to, or capitalize on, the COVID-19 pandemic and changing market conditions.
- Ways in which the landscape of M&A and alternative deals might change in a post-pandemic world.
