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”.

Brit renews property reinsurance sidecar



Lloyd’s of London insurer Brit Ltd. said Monday that it has renewed and expanded the collateralized reinsurance capacity provided by special purpose insurer Versutus Ltd. to support Brit’s property treaty portfolio for 2017.

Bermuda-based Versutus, which was launched in January 2015, will be capitalized at $110 million, up 33% from its previous level, London-based Brit said in a statement. Funding has been secured from renewal and new third party capital partners accepting risk from Jan. 1.

“We are excited to build and expand capacity in this third issuance in the Versutus series,” Jon Sullivan, head of short tail reinsurance at Brit, said in the statement.
