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”.

Cooper Gay Swett & Crawford create MGA for professional liability market


Cooper Gay Swett & Crawford Ltd.'s North America unit has launched StatPro Underwriters, a managing general agent serving the U.S. miscellaneous professional liability insurance market.

StatPro writes errors and omissions risks with limits of up to $5 million of primary capacity backed by Lloyd's of London, CGSC North America said Wednesday in a statement.

Coverage will be placed by Cooper Gay's Lloyd's brokering operation, CGNMB L.L.P., according to the statement.

Coverage is available for a range of professions including claims adjusters, real estate agents and brokers, appraisers, employment agencies and event planners, CGSC North America said.

Additional coverage, such as choice of counsel and automatic inclusion for additional insureds and independent contractors, are available at no cost, according to the statement.

CGSC North America also said Senior Vice President Judy Biancardi and Vice President Samantha Gamble will lead the StatPro team. They will be based in New York.

“We know that brokers want clear decisions on risks fast, so our approach is straightforward,” Ms. Biancardi said in the statement. “Whether through template underwriting offering an exceptionally fast turnaround time for smaller accounts or delivering technical underwriting skills and insight on more complex risks, the team is empowered to respond directly to the specific needs of Swett & Crawford brokers' clients.”
