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”.

Delegates polled for top risks at IIS conference


BERLIN—Immeasurable risks are the biggest threat to the insurance industry, according to a poll of attendees at the International Insurance Society Inc.'s annual conference in Berlin.

While 43% of delegates polled cited immeasurable risks as the biggest threat to insurers, 27% said that inadequate human capital was the industry's biggest threat.

Regulation challenges were considered the biggest threat by 20% of those polled.

Delegates were also asked what they considered the top issue facing the insurance industry, among other questions.

Almost one quarter, 24%, of those polled, said that new market opportunities were the top issue for the insurance industry currently, while 21% cited competitive pricing and adequate profitability as the biggest issue.

About 500 insurance industry executives are attending the IIS' 43rd annual seminar, which runs through Wednesday.
