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”.

Moody's sees potential in Brazil's insurance market


The Brazilian insurance market has the potential to become a more prominent international insurance center, according to Moody's Investors Service.

The market is well developed in bancassurance, Moody's said, and economic growth is increasing demand for property/casualty insurance. The rating agency said that the market has experienced consolidation in recent years and noted that foreign insurers also increasingly are participating in the market.

Moody's said it believed that the country may open up to foreign reinsurers—currently only the state—controlled Instituto de Resseguros do Brasil is able to write reinsurance in Brazil.
