Mergers and Acquisitions

Insurance Day’s Mergers and Acquisitions database allows you to keep track of deal activity by year, type, region, buyer, seller and size. All deals are tagged as life, non-life, composite or international/reinsurance transactions. Wherever possible, we include the deal size (in US dollars) to allow easy ranking. Every entry includes brief highlights of the transaction.
Amid continued high levels of consolidation in the sector, keeping on top of who is doing what and where has never been more important for the insurance industry.
The database tracks takeovers since 2010 in a searchable format, allowing you to track what your rivals are doing and chart the expansion or withdrawal plans of peers within sectors and by region.
You can find out who has been acquiring in Latin America, how many deals a particular company has made this year, all non-life transactions above a certain size in a particular area or who the biggest sellers are in the international/reinsurance market.
