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”.

Endurance gets S&P upgrade to A


NEW YORK--Standard & Poor's Corp. has raised its financial strength ratings on the operating companies of Endurance Specialty Holdings Ltd. to A from A-.

In a statement, the rating agency said the change stems from Pembroke, Bermuda-based Endurance's strong competitive position, its diversified insurance and reinsurance business and its "strong" financial flexibility, among other factors.

New York-based S&P also noted in the statement that Endurance has reduced the volatility of its business, in part by nonrenewing certain "large national commercial per-risk accounts (flood exposure) and property and offshore marine" exposures.
