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”.

InsureZone adds Sequoia Insurance to online commercial rating platform


FORT WORTH, Texas—InsureZone Inc. said Thursday that it has added middle-market underwriter Sequoia Insurance Co. to its online commercial rating platform.

The Fort Worth, Texas-based InsureZone, which provides independent brokers and agents with comparative ratings of personal and commercial insurers, on-demand policy quotes and branded wholesale websites, said in a statement that the partnership with Sequoia is the first step in its push to expand its roster of state-level insurers.

"Our goal for 2012 is to add the carriers required by our partner agencies so that they have a true comparative rating experience with all of the carriers in their market," InsureZone President Ed Gillman said in the statement. “By focusing on developing our state-level roster of carriers, we're able to offer agents options that they wouldn't otherwise have without a direct appointment.”

In addition to single-state underwriters, Mr. Gillman said InsureZone, which serves more than 20,000 independent agents nationwide, also is open to including regional insurers in its databases.
