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”.

An insurance brokerage will soon see its name in an unlikely place: on the green at the PGA tour.

Wholesale broker and underwriting manager Burns & Wilcox Ltd., part of H.W. Kaufman Financial Group and based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, will sponsor pro golfer Jimmy Walker starting in 2016.

Mr. Walker will sport the Burns & Wilcox logo on his golf shirts during tournaments and events, a company spokeswoman said.

Currently ranked No. 25 in the world with five wins on the PGA tour, according to the association's website, Mr. Walker is the brokerage's first professional athlete brand ambassador.

“We are proud to have Jimmy Walker join Team Kaufman as one of his official sponsors,” Alan Jay Kaufman, chairman, president and CEO of Kaufman Financial, said in a statement. “We share many distinctive qualities: integrity, competitive drive, hard work and professionalism.”
