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”.

Aon, asset manager provide cyber capacity


Aon PLC said Thursday it has introduced a new product with an asset manager that will provide up to $70 million of alternative capital to protect insurers and reinsurers against systemic and catastrophic cyber events.

The statement said Aon and Stamford, Connecticut-based Hudson Structured Capital Management Ltd., operating as HSCM Bermuda, have closed their first transaction, a retrocession contract on behalf of an undisclosed cedent.

The capital will protect against increasing cyber loss aggregations on reinsurers’ and insurers’ balance sheets and is structured to protect the cedent for the effects of catastrophic cyber market losses stemming from events such as self-propagating malware or wiperware, distributed denial of service, a significant cloud outage or certificate revocation.
