This Strategic Study, Conning’s 32nd annual in-depth analysis of global insurance M&A (mergers and acquisitions), reviews insurance industry M&A transactions announced in 2021. The analysis covers acquisitions of property-casualty insurers, life-annuity insurers, and health insurers. Acquisitions of insurance agents and brokers and insurance service providers are covered in a separate volume.
Transactions covered include acquisitions of operating companies as well as significant transactions where there is change of control or significant market impact. In the case of life insurance companies, a change in control of some blocks of business is done through reinsurance rather than the acquisition of an operating company.
