Transactional Risk Update
This transactional risk update reflects activity during the first half of 2016. It provides an update on the use of insurance capital to solve transaction–related risk issues in the US & Canada, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, and Asia-Pacific. We have also included a global overview.
Despite slow growth in the global economy and increasing geopolitical uncertainty, our strategic and private equity investor clients have steadily sought new investments and growth opportunities through acquisitions. We noticed that insurance was used as a competitive tool with increasing frequency.
The competitive landscape for quality assets will persist in 2017, driving continued demand for solutions. This will help to drive innovation within the insurance sector as we work to find new solutions for transaction-related risk issues.
