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”.

Zurich Insurance launches apps for risk managers


PHILADELPHIA—Zurich Insurance Co. Ltd. has launched two apps for risk managers, the insurer announced Wednesday at Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc.'s Annual Conference and Exhibition in Philadelphia.

The Zurich Risk Room app is a limited version of the larger risk modeling software Zurich offers clients. The app shows scenarios for natural catastrophe and disaster management, supply chain disruption, regulatory imbalances, social value of insurance and economic value of insurance.

Each has 10 to 12 preselected risks offering a comparison of different countries' stability as well as modeling the interconnection among risks. New risks and scenarios will be added as issues arise.

“Zurich created the Zurich Risk Room to provide a visual depiction of the data points analyzed in the World Economic Forum's ‘Global Risks' report, which Zurich contributes to, and allow users to understand how this data impacts their business," Mike Kerner, CEO of global corporate North America for Zurich Insurance, said in a statement.

The other app, Zurich Virtue Literature Rack, is aimed at midsize and large businesses. This online library includes information about Zurich products, solutions, risk insights, white papers and other materials.

Both apps are available for the iPad , and the Zurich Risk Room app is available for Windows media.
