    QBE, are they the new AIG? They are buying everyone!

    But when will they buy that certain little regional in the East – it would be a nice $1.5 billion complement to their General Casualty and Unigard brands.

    you know the one I’m talking about.

    They also need a company in Canada, and they need to bring everything together with some “international” programs or capabilities.

    It seems that most of QBE’s recent deals are small. Do they have the ability to bite off a $1.5 billion deal? Even though the stock prices are dumped to about $14 or $15 for that carrier, it would take an offer of $30 to buy?

    Are they largely unknown in the U.S.? I hear about them, but are they doing much of anything?

    They’ll be one of the 5 largers in 5 years. And if they buy that eastern carrier that you talk about then they’ll have a greater eastern presence on the retail side. could be very strong.

    If you’re not on board with QBE, then you need to look into them further. They are buying and buying, and in a market when so many insurance operations are struggling, QBE is swooping in on some great deals. They’ll be top 10 in the world in 5-10 years. Get on board now!
