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”.

AIG, Starr settle MGA disputes


NEW YORK--Feuding insurers American International Group Inc. and C.V. Starr & Co. announced Tuesday that they had reached a settlement of certain disputes stemming from the termination of managing general agency relationships between the companies' subsidiaries.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Under the agreement, AIG will cease conducting business under "Starr" and related names, while C.V. Starr will refrain from conducting business under "American International" and related names, according to a joint statement from the companies.

New York-based AIG and its subsidiaries were linked for many years to the Starr companies. However, AIG and Starr have had a contentious relationship since early 2005, when Maurice R. Greenberg was ousted as AIG's chairman and chief executive. Mr. Greenberg is now chairman of Starr.

A spokesman for AIG declined to comment on the settlement.

Representatives for C.V. Starr did not immediately return phone calls.
