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”.

China firm invests in new Lloyd's syndicate managed by Catlin


LONDON—China Reinsurance (Group) Corp. and Catlin Group Ltd. announced a partnership Friday in which the state-owned Chinese reinsurance group will provide capital to establish a Lloyd’s of London syndicate managed by Catlin.

Syndicate 2088 will underwrite quota-share reinsurance effective Jan. 1, 2012, with capacity of about £50 million ($80.4 million) for Catlin syndicate 2003, which underwrites insurance and reinsurance business, the companies said in a statement.

Catlin said the partnership, which remains subject to final approval by Lloyd’s, will allow Bermuda-based Catlin to increase its premium volume next year without seeking additional capital from existing shareholders.

Syndicate 2088 marks the first time a company based in China has invested directly in a Lloyd’s syndicate, the companies said in the statement.
