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 approves L&G's plan to open reinsurer


LONDON—Legal & General Group P.L.C., the London-based life and non-life insurer, has received authorization from the U.K. financial services regulator to establish a new life reinsurance company.

Last month L&G announced that it is to open a reinsurance company, Legal & General Pensions Ltd., to accept its pensions business. The new company will reinsure L&G's U.K. non profit pensions business, predominantly annuities.

The company said in a statement that the new structure will create a more efficient vehicle to support its annuity business, particularly in light of "opportunities opening up in the corporate pensions marketplace."
