The deal count continues to rise in the insurance distribution merger and acquisition (M&A) market.

Year-to-date (YTD) through June 2019, there were 280 announced transactions within the space, according to Marshberry’s “M&A Trends 2019” report. That total is down marginally from the 283 transactions announced during the same period in 2018.

“While the current total count is slightly lower than it was YTD in June 2018, the YTD total tends to lag behind current activity due to retroactive announcements, which suggests that actual transaction activity is still trending higher than a record-setting 2018,” says Phil Trem, executive vice president at MarshBerry, and author of the report.
