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”.

Swiss Re sells the Gherkin


LONDON— Swiss Reinsurance Co. has sold 30 St. Mary Axe, its iconic London office building, to an affiliate of German real estate corporation IVG Immobilien A.G. for £600 million ($1.18 billion).

The deal will be completed this month.

30 St Mary Axe, the 41-story building in the City of London nicknamed the "Gherkin", opened in late 2003 and was designed by Foster and Partners.

Swiss Re will continue to occupy the building and chose IVG Immobilien AG for its "excellent track record in managing properties," according to a statement from the reinsurance company.
