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”.
HAMILTON, Bermuda—XL Group P.L.C. announced profit of $40.8 million for the first nine months of 2011, compared with $397.4 million for the same period last year.
Hamilton, Bermuda-based XL said Tuesday that profit for the third quarter of 2011 was $42.4 million, compared with $77.5 million for the third quarter of 2010.
XL said third-quarter profits decreased largely because of higher natural catastrophe losses and lower levels of positive prior-year loss development.
For the first nine months of 2011, XL recorded gross written premiums of $5.64 billion for its property/casualty operations, compared with $4.95 billion for the first nine months of 2010.

“The (third) quarter saw accelerating rate achievement in most lines. In far more parts of the market the long overdue response to unrealistic pricing is under way,” he said.
