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”.

Arch upgraded to A by S&P


NEW YORK--Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has raised its financial strength rating of operating units of Arch Capital Group Ltd. to A from A-.

The New York-based rating agency raised the ratings of Arch Reinsurance Ltd., Arch Reinsurance Co., Arch Insurance Co., Arch Specialty Insurance Co., Arch Excess & Surplus Insurance Co., and Arch Insurance Co. (Europe) Ltd.

"The upgrade reflects Arch's strong operating performance since inception in absolute and relative terms, its broad and well-diversified business platform, and its strong quantitative and qualitative risk management capabilities, which should help the group mitigate reserve risk associated with its casualty book of business and effectively implement cycle management strategies," said S&P credit analyst Laline Carvalho in a statement announcing the change.
