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”.
Listings in the annual Business Insurance directory of alternative risk financing facilities begin with the name of the facility and manager and the address of the manager.
Listed next is the domicile of the facility; the risks the facilty underwrites; the limits it provides; the minimum retention; the policy form used; how potential policyholders can gain access to the facility; the date the first policy was written; 1996 premium volume and if reported, 1996 deposit premiums (premiums paid in advance for long-term policies); assets as well as capital and surplus at year-end 1996; the number of policyholders in 1996 and an estimate for 1997; and a description of the facility's membership, including any association requirements. Completing the listing is the name of the person to contact for additional information.
The information on each facility was provided by the facility or its manager in response to a Business Insurance questionnaire. Although every effort has been made to report complete and accurate information, BI is unable to verify all the information provided.
