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”.

Kiln plans Bermuda move


Kiln P.L.C. has announced it plans to set up a subsidiary in Bermuda.

London-based Kiln said that Kiln Re will be capitalized at £160 million ($308.9 million).

Edward Creasy, chief executive officer of Kiln, said the company believed a Bermudian operation will be "complementary to Kiln's existing Lloyd's business.

Mr. Creasy said in a statement that Kiln still believed Lloyds to be a "commercially advantageous platform."

In the past months, several Lloyd's-based companies have set up companies in Bermuda.

Kiln reported pre-tax profit of £64.1 million ($123.7 million), up from £8.5 million ($16.4 million) in 2005.

The company's combined ratio for 2006 was 77%, compared with 114% in 2005, and rates increased on average by 15.9% last year, Kiln noted.
