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”.

Marsh launches excess cyber product underwritten by Lloyd's

Marsh launches excess cyber product underwritten by Lloyd's

Marsh L.L.C. on Wednesday said it has launched a global excess cyber risk facility underwritten by Lloyd's of London syndicates.

Marsh said the facility, known as Cyber ECHO, will offer up to $50 million in follow-form coverage for clients from any industry sector around the world.

Marsh said “the facility is designed to respond consistently to the terms and conditions outlined in the primary cyber policy. Such follow-form language helps to mitigate coverage ambiguities that can sometimes lead to costly disputes and/or delays in claims payments.”

The brokerage said that the facility includes a pre-priced option that allows buyers to reinstate policy limits if, during the period of the policy, they experience a cyber event that might exhaust their policy limits.

“While overall capacity in the cyber market remains abundant, the excess market is highly volatile,” Bob Parisi, Marsh's U.S. cyber product leader in New York, said in the statement.

“With Cyber ECHO, we are providing clients of all industry sectors with an efficient and more predictable excess coverage solution,” he added.
