Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC topped the deal value insurance underwriter M&A league table in the third quarter, though J.P. Morgan Securities LLC held the lead in the rankings for the nine-month period ending Sept. 30.

Goldman advised on four deals in the third quarter, two of which were multibillion-dollar transactions. Goldman and J.P. Morgan advised Aspen Insurance Holdings Ltd. on its pending $2.60 billion sale to Apollo Global Management LLC, while Willis Towers Watson Securities and Libero Ventures Ltd. advised the buyer. The investment bank was also an adviser to Navigators Group Inc. on its pending $2.16 billion sale to The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc.

Goldman Sachs served as a sell-side adviser on China Reinsurance (Group) Corp.'s pending acquisition of Hanover Insurance International Holdings Ltd., Chaucer Insurance Company Designated Activity Company and Hanover Australia HoldCo Pty Ltd. The company also advised American International Group Inc. on its pending sale of a stake in DSA Reinsurance Co. Ltd. to Carlyle Group LP.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc. was a buy-side financial adviser on the DSA and Navigators deals, and earned the second-most insurance underwriter M&A deal credit in the third quarter, with $2.64 billion from those two transactions. J.P. Morgan, Libero Ventures and Willis Towers Watson finished tied for third position in the period with one assignment each.

In the insurance brokerage space, Sica Fletcher LLC held on to the top spot in the deal volume standings.
