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”.

Lufthansa captive gets rating


COLOGNE, Germany—A.M. Best Co. said Wednesday it had assigned a financial strength rating of B++ (Good) to Germany's Delvag Luftfahrtversicherungs-A.G. and its subsidiary, Delvag Rueckversicherungs-AG.

All ratings were assigned a stable outlook, said Oldwick, N.J.-based Best.

Delvag and Delvag Rueck, based in Cologne, are Lufthansa Airlines' primary and reinsurance captives. The captives also accept third-party business to diversify their portfolios.

The factors leading to the ratings include Delvag's "adequate risk-adjusted capitalization and excellent operating performance," Best said. "The ratings of Delvag Rueck benefit from a partial rating enhancement from the profit and loss absorption agreement with Delvag, its immediate parent."
