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”.

Reprints

Zurich Insurance Group Ltd. will stop underwriting nonlife insurance business in the Middle East because of limited profit prospects, it said.

Zurich, which is undergoing a review of its nonlife business following a third-quarter loss, announced Thursday that it would cease writing business for small business and retail customers in the region by the end of November and would exit the market entirely by the end of 2016.

In a statement, the insurer said it remained committed to its life insurance business in the Middle East.
