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”.

Flood reaction should enhance reputation: Study


LONDON—Insurance brokers in the United Kingdom believe that their handling of the recent severe flooding in parts of England will ultimately have a positive effect on the reputation of the U.K. insurance industry, according to a study carried out by London-based National Insurance and Guarantee Corp. Ltd.

The survey of 184 brokers carried out in late June found that 45% felt that the insurance industry's handling of the flooding would have a positive impact on its reputation, while 28% thought the industry's handling of the aftermath would worsen its reputation. A further 22% predicted no change.

"Ultimately, insurance is all about claims, and the aftermath of this unprecedented flooding will provide our industry with the biggest opportunity to show its true worth for a number of years," said Mike Crane, NIG's head of SME services and servicing, in a statement.
