New report from Novidea helps brokers and insurers maximise M&A success
FINANCIAL IT - Novidea, the data-driven management platform for the insurance industry, has today launched a new report to help insurance executives maximise success following a merger or acquisition.
The report follows yet another huge bumper year for M&A activity in the insurance industry, as this model becomes an increasingly common path to business growth. In the UK in 2017 alone, the value of M&A deals totalled £22 billion, according to Deloitte.
The report highlights some of the biggest decisions that need to be made in the wake of M&A activity, from who to hire from both businesses and which parts of the business to focus resources on, to the company’s objectives for the next year and which business lines to focus on – all of which can have a significant impact on the business.Whilst brokers understand the importance of getting the deal done, post-merger or acquisition is often where the hard work begins as they get to grips with their newly integrated business.
