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”.

LONDON-A new Lloyd's of London corporate syndicate set up by USF&G Corp. is now trading.

Lloyd's syndicate 1211 has stamp capacity for this year of 17.8 million ($28 million) and plans to specialize in international reinsurance business. Syndicate 1211's sole member is F&G U.K. Underwriters Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Baltimore-based USF&G.

John Dendy, a longtime underwriter at Lloyd's who most recently was the underwriter for Sturge non-marine syndicate 546, is the underwriter for the new venture, which began doing business Jan. 2.

Syndicate 1211 is managed by F&G U.K. Agency Ltd., a new managing agency set up by USF&G subsidiary F&G Holdings Ltd. and Lloyd's managing agent Ashley Palmer Holdings Ltd.

John Berger, executive vp of USF&G's reinsurance subsidiary, F&G Re, said the move was "an extension of USF&G's international reinsurance strategy." The officers of F&G Re will become officers of the various new companies.

Directors of F&G U.K. Agency Ltd. are: Martin Ashley, Clifford Palmer and David Reed, all of Ashley Palmer; and Mr. Berger and Tim Olson of F&G Re.
