Global M&A exceeds nearly all expectations


Global M&A exceeds nearly all expectations

Against all odds, global dealmakers are looking ahead despite significant geographic changes, a Re/insurance Lounge discussion with Clyde & Co agreed.

While the global insurance industry paused briefly for reflection during the first half of 2020, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity across the globe defied expectations and soared. However, while the Americas, Middle East and Africa improved, there was a notable slowdown in Europe.

This was one of the main points from an interview with Vikram Sidhu, partner, New York, and Eva-Maria Barbosa, partner, Munich, both of Clyde & Co. The interview took place on Intelligent Insurer’s Re/insurance Lounge, an online platform where interviews and panel discussions are available on demand.

Sidhu said deal activity had been robust for about five years, but there had been some levelling off in 2019.
