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”.

Letter: With transparency, contingents no problem


To the editor: In your blurb Nov. 6 about Marsh Inc. pursing middle-market business, CEO Brian Storms makes a lot of hay about the disparity between Marsh and most other brokers related to contingent commissions.

He fails to mention why this is important to the insured if we in the broker community do our job transparently. Since the insurance companies do not price coverage differently based on the inclusion (or not) of contingencies, where is the beef? If Marsh had not been so deceitful in placing business in the past, treating client accounts like revolving bank accounts, Mr. Storms' comments might make more sense.
