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”.

Lloyd’s of London insurer Helios Underwriting P.L.C. on Friday said it has acquired Devon Underwriting Ltd., a limited liability member of Lloyd’s, for £1.1 million ($1.6 million) in cash.

Devon’s 2016 underwriting capacity is £1.2 million ($1.7 million), compared with Helios’ 2016 capacity of £28.1 million ($40.1 million) prior to the acquisition, Helios said in a statement.

The acquisition “further increases our underwriting capacity,” Helios CEO Nigel Hanbury said in the statement. “This is in line with our stated strategy of acquiring corporate members as suitable opportunities arise. We continue to believe that there remain significant opportunities for further growth available to the Company.”
