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”.

AIG to sell Central American operations


ASSA Compañía Tenedora S.A. and ASSA Compañía de Seguros will acquire 100% of American International Group Inc.'s operations in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama in a share purchase agreement, the companies announced Thursday.

The companies are not disclosing financial details of the transaction, according to an AIG spokesman.

In connection with the transaction, AIG and Panama City-based ASSA “will establish an ongoing business partnership to pursue new opportunities and continue to deliver innovative products and unique customer experiences in Central America,” said the companies in a statement.

Until the transaction receives regulatory approvals, “all operations, branches, products and benefits will continue to operate as usual. ASSA and AIG will work together to ensure a smooth transition for customers and employees,” according to the statement.
