This report looks back on 2015 and discusses:

  • The cross-border M&A and transactions driven by regulatory change and insurers’ focus on efficiency and service capabilities dominated 2015.
  • The impressive volume of reverse deal flow as acquirers from Asia, particularly China and Japan, invested in mature markets across Europe and the US.
  • Positive regulatory developments, such as Obamacare in the US and increase in foreign direct investments limits in India, acted as a catalyst for activity.
  • Large P&C deals, driven by continuing margin pressure, creating the need for scale and complementary underwriting capability, as it was also one of the main driver behind 2015 deals.
