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”.

ACE gets license to underwrite in Bahrain


NEW YORK--ACE Ltd. announced that the Central Bank of Bahrain has approved the company to underwrite commercial property/casualty insurance and reinsurance.

Bermuda-based ACE said in a statement that it hopes to begin operating in Bahrain in August. The insurer has a representative office in Manama, Bahrain, which was licensed in November 2006.

The insurer will write both domestic business in Bahrain and facultative reinsurance and will focus initially on risks including oil and gas, power generation, large and/or complex property, casualty, construction, and directors and officers liability.

"The establishment of this branch and our ability to write local business with the backing of strong financial ratings is a key part of our strategy to develop our presence in the region," Giles Ward, ACE's regional director for the Middle East and North Africa, said in a statement.
