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”.

Bank of America launches Lloyd's syndicate


LONDON—Bank of America Corp.'s insurance group has set up a syndicate at Lloyd's of London.

The syndicate—to be known as the Pembrace Casualty Insurance Syndicate—will have initial stamp capacity of £33 million ($64.5 million) and will underwrite specialty liability, casualty and reinsurance business.

The syndicate will be managed by Spectrum Syndicate Management Ltd., which is independently-owned.

"The launch of Pembrace pairs the financial strength of Bank of America with the marketplace presence of Lloyd's of London to expand and enhance our global insurance strategy," said Keith Pellerin, president of Bank of America's insurance group.

"The fact that such a leading financial institution has chosen to set up a syndicate at Lloyd's is further testament to the strength and attractiveness of the market," said Rolf Tolle, franchise performance director at Lloyd's.
