2015 agency merger and acquisition breaks records
from PIA Western Alliance
OPTIS Partners does an annual accounting of mergers and acquisitions of insurance agencies. The report is titled 2015 Agent-Broker Mergers & Acquisitions. These are agencies selling property and casualty insurance along, property and casualty and employee benefits together and employee benefit only agencies. In 2015 — OPTIS Manager Director Timothy Cunningham said — those M&As hit an all-time record. There ended up being 451 in the U.S. and Canada and that tops the 2014 record of 357 by almost 100.
