Asian News - Asia: M&A trend to kick off in 2016

Source: Asia Insurance Review | Mar 2016

Chinese insurers look set to be major players in the M&A scene this year as they seek overseas growth amid a slowing domestic economy and falling insurance rates. 
 
   Asia has become a net exporter of M&A capital in the (re)insurance sector with outbound deals totalling US$20 billion compared with inbound deals of only $849 million in the first nine months of 2015, according to reinsurance broker Guy Carpenter. 
 
   Mr James Nash, its Asia Pacific CEO, had said at last year’s Monte Carlo Rendez-vous that while Asia is perceived as a growth opportunity and is attracting capital from mature markets, it is actually Asian capital that is seeking opportunities overseas. 
 
400% increase in deals in Asia
The M&A trend has taken firm root in Asia with the total value of announced deals standing at $22 billion in the first nine months of last year, representing a whopping increase of 400% over the previous year. 
 
   Given such a backdrop, Asia Insurance Review’s 3rd Conference on Insurance M&A in Asia gives investment and insurance C-suite executives the opportunity to network with industry leaders and practitioners with significant M&A experiences and effective management strategies to be fully prepared and to stay ahead of the game.
 
   The two-day conference, to be held on 27-28 April in Singapore, will bring together industry experts to provide a comprehensive analysis of the changing insurance M&A landscape in Asia today, latest M&A trends, effective M&A integration and pitfalls that can crop up during integration planning and delivery, post transactions, deal fundamentals and legal aspects that every business practitioner needs to be familiar with.
