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”.

Risks to U.K. nonlife industry low: Report


LONDON—The economic and industry risks to nonlife insurers in the United Kingdom are low and moderately low, according to Standard & Poor's Corp.

The rating agency said that most of its ratings on U.K. nonlife insurers are A- or higher, with a stable outlook.

The industry is subject to strong insurance supervision, and companies have "much improved and still developing" enterprise risk management, among other things, S&P noted.

Offsetting those positive factors, the rating agency said, there is increasing price competition putting pressure on underwriting margins, among other factors.

The U.K. nonlife insurance market is the third-largest in the world, behind the United States and Germany, according to the report.
