Mazars’ Insurance Broker M&A Outlook 2021

The UK Insurance Broking M&A outlook for 2021 is fascinating, especially following the obvious challenges of 2020.

The impact of global factors in Q1 2020 caused the Insurance Broker world to see an initial drop-off of M&A activity, as per all sectors. However, unlike many sectors, there followed a great flurry of transactions within the market that lasted throughout the rest of the year. The fact that the total number of deals ended up being consistent with the previous year, despite the obvious headwinds, is testament to the resilience of the sector and its attractiveness to M&A activity.

Based both on a market survey, and market insights, we are delighted to present our annual outlook on the M&A market for the UK insurance broking industry for 2021.
