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”.

Aon buys out Russian unit


MOSCOW, Russia—Aon Holdings B.V., a unit of Aon Corp., has bought the 51% of Aon Rus L.L.C. it did not previously own.

Aon said the deal would better enable it to meet the needs of its clients in Russia.

"The Russian market is becoming very mature and now we are even better prepared to meet the challenges ahead," Rim Knaup, Aon's chief executive officer of the Nordic countries, Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Israel, said in a statement.

In November 2005, Aon agreed with Corporation Risk L.L.C., the then majority owner of Aon Rus, that it would buy out the 51% stake. The Russian regulator agreed the deal in July 2006, and the acquisition was completed in December, Aon said.
