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”.

AJF will continue to serve its existing customers while leveraging the national marketing network of Philadelphia Insurance Cos., the insurer said, adding that current AJF President Michael Flood will continue leading its operation as the head of the A&H division for Philadelphia.
