Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) March 30, 2016
InvestmentBank.com, a division of Merit Harbor Group, LLC, has initiated a search for an experienced insurance investment banker to lead its insurance capital advisory practice. The desired candidate will be someone with the expertise, experience and leadership required to oversee the firm’s established insurance investment banking team whose clients include property, casualty, life and health insurance firms.
In 2015, after many years of slow growth, mergers and acquisition activity started to pick up again across the insurance industry. Indeed, 2015 was the most active year ever for M&A activity in the insurance sector. It also represented a significant spike in activity over 2014 when total deal values where 37% lower. “The insurance industry is experiencing major growth at the moment, and this is why we are looking for a senior advisor to lead and expand our insurance practice,” says Nate Nead, Director of InvestmentBank.com. Nead adds, “While there are several factors driving merger and acquisition activity in the insurance industry at this time, global investment the most obvious driving force. In 2015, a growing number of foreign investors, especially in China and Japan, started to invest in US-based insurance firms.” For this reason, InvestmentBank.com’s ideal candidate to lead its insurance capital advisory practice is someone with a solid background advising on M&As and someone with specific experience supporting foreign investors, including but not limited to those in the Asian market.
In addition to its insurance capital advisory practice, InvestmentBank.com has divisions focused on oil, gas and electricity, software and technology, shipping and logistics, and real estate. InvestmentBank.com offers a full suite of services to its clients from raising capital and providing buy-side and sell-side M&A assistance to supporting public offerings and succession planning. Its insurance capital advisory practice is known for its transactional and technical expertise and established network, which includes top insurance firms across the nation. “Closing deals in the insurance industry, especially in the current market, can be complex,” says Nead, “We offer expert advice based on our substantial industry experience, which includes a strong track record of closing high value deals. Whoever joins our team at this time will have the experience and leadership required to continue growing this part of our operation.”
