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”.

SCOR premiums increase 11% at April reinsurance renewals


PARIS—SCOR S.E said it recorded a premium increase of 11% during the April 1 reinsurance renewals.

The Paris-based reinsurer also said it recorded a pricing increase of 7% during the renewal period.

In a statement, SCOR said the price increases largely reflect concerns over natural catastrophe-related exposure in Asia. Increase in the volumes underwritten was closely linked to 25% growth recorded in both Japan and India, SCOR added.

Marine and construction business lines recorded growth of 17% and 13% respectively, SCOR said.

“These excellent renewals bear witness to SCOR’s ability to pursue its policy of strict underwriting and active portfolio management, whilst remaining a long-term partner for its clients,” Victor Peignet, CEO of SCOR’s global property/casualty group, said in a statement. “Although 2011 was marked by unprecedented losses in Asia-Pacific, this momentum has been made possible by the group’s strong franchise and the quality of its client relationships.”
