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”.

Marsh releases white paper on cost of risk


LONDON—Marsh Ltd., the London-based arm of New York-based insurance brokerage Marsh Inc., has launched a white paper in which it advises its corporate clients on the course of action they should take to arrive at optimal risk financing arrangements.

"Optimising Return on Capital Employed on Risk Transfer," which was produced following discussions with clients and markets, describes the process that Marsh advocates its clients take, according to Richard Waterer of Marsh's risk consulting practice in London.

This process draws on information and people from across a business, encouraging them to offset investment in mitigation and management strategies with a reduction in cost of risk, and to counterbalance expenditure on insurance with realistic retentions, Marsh said in the white paper.

The white paper claims that following this process—which it described as a tool for risk managers—can typically result in a sustainable and lower total cost of risk. At the launch of the white paper in London, Marsh Ltd. Chief Executive, Martin South said that the paper was geared towards large and medium-sized companies, although the issues were there for all.
