Insights into the Benelux insurance market and analyzing acquisition targets 

An international Private Equity (PE) fund was looking to enter the Benelux insurance market and wanted to explore the buy-and-build opportunities in the broker landscape. Our client wished to understand the current developments in the Benelux broker market and the opportunities that it presented for them in the future. In addition, the fund wanted help to analyze a shortlist of targets to make an informed investment decision. Specifically, they wished to gauge each target’s capacity to serve as a platform for further buy-and-build opportunities. The target’s potential capacity was evaluated both from the perspective of its commercial positioning as well as its organizational and technological setup.

IG&H assembled a dedicated team with both strategy expertise as well as specific insurance and broker market expertise. Several factors were critical in helping our client make an informed investment decision: 

  1. We combined our commercial and operational due diligence experience with our wide network in the insurance broker market.

  2. Secondly, the project team had access to proprietary research data from the IG&H Distribution monitor and IG&H Performance monitor, providing unparalleled insight into the performance of insurance brokers in the Netherlands.

  3. Finally, our extensive track record as experts on the Dutch broker market and its players meant we could add further context and detailed interpretation to the facts.
