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”.

Scor plans Malaysian retakaful capability


SINGAPORE—The Monetary Authority of Singapore has authorized SCOR Asia-Pacific to apply to the Labuan Offshore Financial Services Authority for an extension to its nonlife branch license in Labuan, Malaysia, to underwrite retakaful reinsurance contracts.

SCOR Asia-Pacific, the Singapore-based arm of French reinsurance group SCOR S.A., opened a branch in Labuan in 2000. The Labuan branch will be the base for the group's Islamic finance retakaful activities in Asia.

SCOR said it believes that the demand for Takaful reinsurance has "high growth potential," particularly in Asia and in the Middle East.
