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”.

Atradius acquires in Russia


AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Atradius N.V., a global credit insurer, and AlfaStrakhovanie, a Russian insurer which currently does not offer credit insurance, have signed a co-operation agreement whereby Moscow-based AlfaStrakhovanie will offer Atradius products through its distribution network.

Peter Ingenlath, chief executive officer of Amsterdam-based Atradius, said that he believes credit insurance in Russia could grow at about a 20% compound annual growth rate in the coming years.

"This co-operation agreement enables us to meet the insurance requirements of our existing clients and puts us in a strong position to build new business," he said in a statement.

Commenting on the co-operation agreement, Vladimir Skvortsov, CEO of AlfaStrakhovanie Insurance Group, said: "In view of the high demand for credit insurance in Russia we need a reliable partner providing insurance coverage not only to small- to medium-sized enterprises but also to large corporate clients who need re-insurance protection abroad."
