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”.

Mitsui boosts Bermuda capital


TOKYO—Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Co. Ltd. is banking on a healthy reinsurance market by boosting the capital in its Bermuda subsidiary.

The Tokyo-based insurer is adding $100 million to the capital of MS Frontier Reinsurance Ltd., bringing the reinsurer's capital to $300 million. MS Frontier writes property catastrophe reinsurance.

Mitsui Sumitomo said in a statement that "the natural catastrophe reinsurance market is turning around" and it expects that the demand for "highly-secured reinsurance capacity would remain very strong."

MS Frontier's additional capital gives it the ability to take advantage of market conditions and "react in a more agile and flexible manner," the insurer said.
