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”.

Dow Jones creates New York captive


NEW YORK—Financial publisher Dow Jones & Co. has set up a captive insurance company to help manage its terrorism-related exposures.

The New York-domiciled captive—Bergstresser Insurance Inc. —is writing only terrorism coverage, though there are plans for it to write property policies for Dow Jones and its subsidiaries and affiliates in the future, said Jody Wald, captives coordinator in the insurance department's dedicated captive group.

Under New York law, captives are not permitted to write third-party risks.

Mr. Wald declined to disclose how much coverage Bergstresser can write under its license.
