Similarly, Hartford Financial Services [Free Report on HIG] [1] divested its life insurance and retirement units to allow it to focus more on its property and casualty insurance segment.  The capital influx stemming from the deals should also facilitate growth.

Low bond yields are a concern for insurers which may prompt increased merger and acquisition activity this year.  The cyclical nature of the insurance market is beginning to turn in favor of insurers though, further brightening the outlook for the industry.
