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”.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates—Lancashire Holdings Ltd. announced that it plans to open a subsidiary in the Dubai International Financial Centre and seek a license from the Dubai Financial Services Authority for the subsidiary to operate as an insurance intermediation firm.

In a statement, Richard Brindle, chief executive officer of Hamilton, Bermuda-based Lancashire, said the company intended to write non-catastrophe-exposed engineering risks in the Middle East, as well as other lines such as energy.

"In the longer-term, having a presence in the Middle East will allow the Lancashire group to grow a solid book of business that will complement our existing underwriting," he said in the statement.
