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”.

U.K. P&I Club posts surplus


LONDON—The U.K. P&I Club posted a $46 million surplus during its most recent financial year largely due to a significant recovery under a policy triggered by record claims at the International Group of P&I Clubs and strong investment returns.

The protection and indemnity club increased free reserves by 20% to $263 million based on its performance for the year that ended in February.

Heavy claims filed by pool members who share in losses at the International Group triggered a policy written for the U.K. Club by Swiss Reinsurance Co. The club recovered $54.1 million under the policy, which amounted to a net benefit of $43.4 million after a commutation balance of $10.7 million had been satisfied.

The U.K. P&I Club's investment income reached $76.9 million for the financial year, significantly higher than the previous year's $49 million gain.

The club's gross premiums rose slightly to $358 million from $355 million the year before.
