Acquisition-based growth is not without risks, particularly if you are exploring new geographies, products or markets. Identifying the best deal to maximize value demands detailed analysis of opportunities.
Insurers are now approaching mergers and acquisitions with their sights firmly fixed on profitable growth, operational efficiencies, scale, diversification and risk profile, as well as management talent. Increased awareness of shareholder losses that followed previous merger waves ensures that good governance, target selection and due diligence will be conducted with greater rigor.
