How to sell an insurance business in the Netherlands

Should a M&A advisor know your business and the insurance industry?The CFIE M&A team combines a local presence in the Dutch market with extensive industry knowledge of the insurance business. When we help insurance clients in selling their business we use a local person on the ground who fully understands the Dutch insurance market. This person works together with other European insurance M&A experts. Some of the areas of the insurance businesses where we have large experience are:

  • Insurance portfolios
  • Insurance broking
  • Risk consulting
  • Insurance underwriting
  • Reinsurance underwriting

When you sell your insurance business it is important that a M&A advisor understands the insurance market your company operates in.

Type of buyers for your insurance business

Who could be a possible buyer for your Dutch insurance business?There is quite a lot of consolidation in the insurance industry. We see many buyers look to acquire insurance portfolio’s. Most of the existing players that do acquisitions are of a large size. At CFIE we look at both domestic, Dutch, as well as international strategic insurance buyers. The best buyer might be a small, regional insurance company or one of the larger generic insurance firms. If you want to sell your insurance company there might also be a niche or industry specific insurance firm that can be better suited. We work together and try to find the buyer for you. If you have an insurance firm of a larger size and you want to achieve the highest sales price often international buyers are the best solution.
