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”.

Global specialty insurer expands aviation coverage to U.S.


Global specialty insurer Torus Insurance Holdings Ltd. has partnered with Seattle-based managing general agent London Aviation Underwriters Inc. to write general aviation insurance in the United States.

Coverage will be written through London-based Torus’ U.S. admitted insurer, Torus National Insurance Co., Torus said Tuesday in a statement.

London Aviation Underwriters writes general aviation risks as well as airport premises liability and nonowned aircraft liability, Torus said.

“While Torus has been a significant writer of aviation insurance globally, we have not historically had a significant general aviation presence in the United States,” John Shettle, vice chairman of Torus and CEO of Torus’ U.S. operations, said in the statement, adding, “LAU has a strong reputation for underwriting, claims and policyholder service excellence.”
