Insurers search for growth – Navigating challenging and uncertain times

Market conditions for insurance businesses have not improved during the last 12 months – if anything, they may have slightly worsened. In this environment it is difficult to tread water and stay afloat, let alone move ahead of the competition by delivering the growth that shareholders expect.

Looking more broadly to the future drivers of growth, it is our view that the insurance sector is set for a paradigm shift.

However, a merger or acquisition (M&A) remains, for many insurance businesses, a popular strategy and solution to deliver scale, diversification and access to new markets.

In our new report, Insurers search for growth, Clyde & Co Corporate Insurance Partners around the world look at the drivers and the outlook for the transactions market in the industry, alongside the opportunities presented by other routes to growth. These include moving into new markets, looking at opportunities to generate new products and services, and developing new processes and business models through the adoption of new technologies.
