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”.

Starr forms global accident and health unit


NEW YORK--C.V. Starr & Co. Inc. has organized a subsidiary to tackle the global accident and health market and is introducing a new employer stop-loss product in partnership with Chubb Corp.

Newly formed Starr Global Accident & Health Insurance Agency L.L.C., based in Greenwich, Conn., will be managed by industry professionals with experience in both domestic and international accident and health lines, New York-based C.V. Starr said Wednesday.

The new employer stop-loss product is the first of many it plans to bring to the market, according to a company statement.

"Our ability to capitalize on C.V. Starr's excellent relationship with Chubb will enable us to bring an outstanding offering of security, strength and professionalism to the employer stop-loss marketplace in a 'can-do' environment of creativity," said Peter McGuire, president and chief executive officer of Starr Global Accident & Health.

Warren, N.J.-based Chubb, meanwhile, will continue to write employer stop-loss coverage through its independent agents and brokers.

"This agreement provides Chubb with new growth opportunities in the employer stop-loss insurance marketplace," said Thomas F. Motamed, vice chairman and chief operating officer of Chubb Corp. "We look forward to working with Starr Global Accident & Health's team of highly experienced insurance specialists to deliver Chubb-quality products and services to an array of U.S. employers."
