Key takeaways:
  • 2021 marked the return of significant transactions across the insurance space, with both acquisitions and disposals and a number of substantial reinsurance transactions to de-risk portfolios and release capital. Q1 2022 has seen a slight decline in this activity from a high-point in Q4 2021.
  • Keen private equity appetite, despite lingering concerns from regulators, has continued to drive activity across the sector.
  • There is heightened regulatory focus on transactions generally and especially run-off transactions, as well as further regulatory activity following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
