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”.

Best rates Glacier Insurance A-


VADUZ, Liechtenstein—Rating agency A.M. Best Co. Inc. has assigned a financial strength rating of A- to Glacier Insurance A.G.

The outlook is negative, in line with that of the parent company, Glacier Reinsurance A.G., Best said in a statement.

Last month, Pfaffikon, Switzerland-based Glacier Re launched its primary insurance company, Glacier Insurance, to write marine and energy, property, liability, aviation, space and war and terrorism business throughout Europe.

Best said that it expects Vaduz, Liechtenstein-based Glacier Insurance to write gross premiums written of approximately $8 million in 2006, rising to approximately $18 million in 2007.

"The ratings reflect the full rating enhancement from the explicit support in the form of a 95% quota share reinsurance and a guarantee provided by Glacier Re," Best said in a statement.
