American private equity funds, as well as non-commercial investors, have been insuring their transactions for some time. According to the ABA (Private Target Mergers & Acquisitions Deal Points Study of the American Bar Association), 60% of all deals will be insured in 2021. The trend from the U.S. has now also established itself worldwide in the midmarket as an alternative to escrow and guarantees. According to the CMS European M&A Study 2022, insurance inquiries increased to such an extent in 2021 that insurers already reached their budgets in Q1. The unbroken rise of these solutions meant that 33% of all transactions with volumes of EUR 25 to 100 million and 47% of all larger sales were insured.
