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”.

Regulator clears members' agency merger


LONDON—The United Kingdom's Competition Commission has cleared the acquisition by Hampden Agencies Ltd. of the Lloyd's of London members' agency business of CBS Private Capital Ltd.

The acquisition reduced the number of members' agencies from three to just two - Hampden and Argenta Private Capital Ltd.

In its final report the Competition Commission concluded that the acquisition has not resulted, and may not be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition in relation to the supply of members' agency services to active individual members of Lloyd's. The report confirms the Commission's provisional findings report, published on 1 November 2006.
