New Horizons: How Diverse Growth Strategies Can Advance Digitalisation In The Insurance Industry

Arlington, VA (Feb. 22, 2017) – We are delighted to introduce Willis Towers Watson’s latest report investigating merger and acquisition (M&A) trends in the insurance sector, carried out in conjunction with Mergermarket, the global proprietary M&A intelligence provider.

We surveyed 200 senior-level executives to map the changing attitude of insurers to digital technologies and to examine the extent to which companies are using M&A strategies to realise their digitalisation ambitions.

How would you characterise the level of adoption of digital technologies in the insurance sector compared to other financial service sectors?

The survey identifies where insurers see the biggest gaps in their digital capabilities and reveals how they plan to close them. Do they believe, for example, that digital transformation can be led from within the company, or will the race to secure the benefits of digitalisation power a new wave of corporate transactions?
