BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

The sale includes the transfer of legal entities that contain the assets, liabilities and capital supporting the runoff business, as well as certain infrastructure, such as staff and office space, the company said.
