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”.

MAP launches U.S. property cat syndicate


LONDON—Managing Agency Partners Ltd. has launched a new syndicate at Lloyd's of London to underwrite U.S. property catastrophe reinsurance business.

Syndicate 6103 has capacity of almost £43.0 million ($84.7 million), provided by private investors, according to Hampden Agencies Ltd., the members' agent whose investors provided £28.6 million ($56.3 million) of that total.

Hampden said in a statement that MAP, which also operates multiline syndicate 2791, had set up the syndicate to take advantage of the "exceptionally high rates" being seen in the U.S. property catastrophe reinsurance market.

"The new syndicate will initially trade for one year, although trading will continue in 2008 if rates remain attractive," the statement said.
