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 said in a statement that trends noted at the January 1 renewal included increased cedent retentions, a shift towards non-proportional cover and a move towards more centralized reinsurance buying.

SCOR noted that for property and casualty business outside the United States, rate decreases typically were "moderate" and less than 10%.
