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”.

New commercial insurance fronting company launches


Newly formed commercial insurance fronting provider Clear Blue Financial Holdings L.L.C. has launched with two fully licensed fronting insurers, Charlotte, North Carolina-based Clear Blue announced Tuesday.

Clear Blue last month acquired Peoria, Illinois-based RLI Indemnity Co. and Raleigh, North Carolina-based Maiden Specialty Insurance Co. as pure shells. The two specialty insurance companies will serve as growth platforms for Clear Blue’s operations, Clear Blue said in a statement.

RLI Indemnity has been renamed Clear Blue Insurance Co. and will serve as the business’ licensed admitted insurer, while Maiden Specialty Insurance has been renamed Clear Blue Specialty Insurance Co. and will serve as the business’ licensed nonadmitted insurer.

The companies, which will begin serving clients immediately, are backed by New York-based private equity firm Pine Brook Partners.

Clear Blue was founded by a management team led by President and CEO Jerome Breslin, formerly of Bank of America’s commercial insurance division.
