Technology will become a key feature on the growth agenda in the coming year as re/insurers seek out insurtech providers that can deliver a competitive advantage. In turn, this will also drive M&A strategies and activities, say executives from Clyde & Co in a panel discussion.

Insurtech providers will increasingly take centre-stage in the way carriers consider acquisition, investment, and partnership—reshaping the insurance mergers and acquisitions (M&A) landscape in the process. As technology begins to drive a new dynamic in insurance growth, investment decisions could be based on far more than simply great product lines.

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

“While there will be much investing in new lines of product, technology will certainly drive a new and dynamic pattern in insurance M&A,” said Barbosa.
