M&A Separation Programme – Leading UK Insurer

Our client, one of the UK’s leading Insurers, consisted of two main “Lines of Business”: General and Life insurance divisions. A competitor acquired a 49% stake in the General Insurance Group and later completed the 100% acquisition. A programme of work was launched to separate the businesses, impacting all dimensions of the business model: People, Process, Technology, Data and Facilities.

B2E Consulting was key in providing expertise and assurance in key areas of the planned separation including: Infrastructure Design & Migration Support, £30m of this on transition and transformation activities and assurance of the IT Outsourcing related programme.

M&A Post Acquisition Separation Programme – Leading Infrastructure Investment Corporation

Following the successful acquisition of one of the world’s busiest airports, our client, a leading infrastructure investment corporation with over $40 billion assets under management across the globe, required experts to support the separation of the airport from its parent company.

B2E Consulting performed a crucial role in delivering multiple aspects of our client’s technical operations, ensuring the stable transition of digital systems post-acquisition.
