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”.

Texas doubles captive insurer count in 2015


The number of captive insurers licensed in Texas, one of the newest U.S. captive domiciles, nearly doubled in 2015, according to the Texas Department of Insurance in Austin.

Last year, 11 captives were licensed and one captive dissolved, bringing the state's captive count at year-end 2015 to 21, the insurance department said in an email Friday.

The new captives licensed were all single-parent, the only kind allowed Texas' 2013 captive statute.
