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”.

Munich Re unit buys stop-loss MGU


PRINCETON, N.J.--Munich Re America HealthCare, a unit of Munich Reinsurance America Inc., has agreed to acquire Cairnstone Inc., a Miami-based managing general underwriter providing stop-loss insurance for self-insured employers.

Under the transaction, which is expected to close in September, the Princeton, N.J.-based Munich Re Group unit will buy the 75% stake in Cairnstone that it does not already own.

Cairnstone, which currently manages more than $80 million in stop-loss business, will operate independently and retain its name while keeping its core management, the companies said in a statement.

Cairnstone also provides catastrophic medical coverage for hospital and physician groups.
