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”.

Allianz expands in Russia


MOSCOW, Russia— Allianz S.E. is expanding in Russia with the acquisition of property/casualty insurer Progress-Garant.

Progress-Garant, based in Moscow, wrote gross premiums of around $120 million in 2006. Munich-based Allianz said the acquisition will expand its participation in Russia's commercial and personal lines markets, particularly in the country's growing health, motor and property insurance markets.

Allianz said it purchased all the insurer's shares from its management but did not disclose additional terms of the transaction.
