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”.

Beazley pleased with £150 million debt issue raised


London-based insurer Beazley Group P.L.C. has raised £150 million through a debt issue.

The proceeds of the debt issue will be used to replace existing debt, as well as support growth opportunities in its business as they arise, Beazley said in a statement. Andrew Horton, group finance director at Beazley said: "We are enthusiastic about our debut in the debt markets and are delighted that it was so heavily oversubscribed. The £150m of subordinated debt, will further strengthen our balance sheet.

Andrew Beazley, chief executive of Beazley added in a statement: "The rating Beazley received from Standard & Poor's and investor demand for the issue is a positive endorsement of the direction the business is taking. The insurance industry is going through an exciting phase and a well-structured balance sheet will support future development."

Earlier this week, Beazley announced that it had opened an office in Paris, its first in France.
