Insurers are increasingly showing interest in the fast-growing markets of Central and Eastern Europe, either seeking to enter this arena or expand their presence in the region, while growing companies based here are seeking capital.

Milliman has broad global and regional insurance M&A experience, as well as country-specific knowledge of the emerging CEE markets. We are among the most experienced consultants in this field, offering cross-border expertise on every aspect of the M&A process.

In developing countries-where there is substantial growth potential but where current business may be modest-it's important to get the most sophisticated analysis possible of proposed M&A targets. Through our offices in Warsaw and Bucharest we have a unique perspective on valuation and market trends in the CEE region. Our experience includes recent transactions in Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, and Romania.

We offer complete services for every important task in the M&A process, including:

  • Actuarial due diligence
  • Business valuation and evaluation of future potential
  • Strategic review
  • Deal structure

We can rapidly assemble a multidisciplinary team of experts from around the region and beyond to analyze the target company, the marketplace, and regulatory environment. Does an acquisition in a CEE country make sense, or would a greenfield start-up be more appropriate? Our consultants can develop scenarios to explore all alternatives.

Healthcare M&A

In Central and Eastern Europe, Milliman consultants offer comprehensive healthcare expertise to companies that want to purchase or divest healthcare assets. Our clients in this arena include banks, venture capital firms, and insurers.

Our reviews examine every aspect of a healthcare organisation, including provider contracts, sales strategy, product design, patient demographics, and medical management operations. Using our in-house benchmarks, we can compare a healthcare organisation's results with industry best practices to analyse the potential for improvement and growth in a possible acquisition.

Our healthcare experts in the region provide detailed due diligence reviews, guiding clients through each stage of the complicated process of buying or selling.
