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”.

Texas financial firm launches Bermuda reinsurer


SAN ANTONIO--San Antonio-based Southwest Business Corp., a diversified financial services company, has established SWBC RE Ltd., a Bermuda-based reinsurer.

SWBC RE will reinsure business from a variety of insurance partners and companies, according to SWBC.

SWBC also will be the administrator of the debt protection business out of its San Antonio office.

SWBC provides a wide range of insurance, mortgage and investment services to financial institutions, businesses and individuals.

"We felt that SWBC RE Ltd. was the next step in the diversification of SWBC," Charlie Amato, SWBC chairman, said in a statement.

A spokesman could not be reached for comment about SWBC RE's capitalization.
