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”.

Willis Towers Watson offers cargo undercover policy

Willis Towers Watson offers cargo undercover policy

Willis Towers Watson PLC has launched a cargo undercover policy that includes geopolitical exposures that previously would have been covered separately, the brokerage said Tuesday in a statement.

Cargo undercover is aimed at minimizing potential gaps in coverage and the likelihood of claims disputes, as well as removing the need to establish the motivation for a claim, which can be a challenge at times of political instability, the statement said.

The policy provides cover for a variety of geopolitical exposures including political violence, terrorism, rebellion, terrestrial wars and looting, whether politically motivated or otherwise, the statement said.

“Geopolitical risk is creating an increasingly uncertain risk environment, particularly for cargo owners,” New York-based Patrick Murphy, head of cargo, global marine for Willis Towers Watson, said in the statement.
