Although 2016 M&A activity in the insurance industry was on the upswing, a Boston Consulting Group study found that almost half the deals it analyzed diminished rather than added shareholder value. In this succinct but informative article, BCG professionals provide strategic guidelines on how to improve the odds of success. They highlight the fact that synergy – a buzzword that often appears in M&A announcements – doesn’t always materialize after deals close. getAbstract recommends the disciplined BCG approach to insurance executives, financial managers, investment bankers, investors and anyone involved in the insurance sector.
In this summary, you will learn
- What factors drive insurance sector M&A activity,
- How successful these deals have been and
- What management approaches can achieve favorable M&A results.
