The insurance trends private-equity investors should understand in 2021

August 25, 2021

As the contours of a postpandemic economy begin to take shape, the implications for privateequity (PE) investors in the insurance sector are also coming into focus. When we last published our perspective on this space, in November 2020, insurance-industry M&A activity was on the rise, insurtech IPOs and special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) were taking off, and uncertainty around the timing of COVID-19 vaccines and the “next normal” loomed large.
