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”.

Risk managers want more time for contracts; Yarhi


NANTES, France—Risk managers need more timely production of insurance contracts, according to the president of the French risk management association.Speaking at at l'Association pour le Management des Risques et des Assurances de l'Entreprise's conference in Nantes, France.

Michel Yarhi, group insurance manager of Société Générale and president of AMRAE, noted that insurance buyers across Europe wanted better service with regard to the production of contracts.

Mr. Yarhi cited a survey undertaken by the Federation of European Risk Management Associations published in October, in which risk managers "almost unanimously" said that getting contracts late was a problem.

Mr. Yarhi noted that in the banking sector, under the Basel II accord, banks are required to have contracts in place well in advance, and while there were initial difficulties in meeting this requirement, it now is commonplace for contracts to be received three months before they come into force.
