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”.

Moody's acquires Toronto actuarial software firm


Moody's Corp., New York, has acquired Toronto, Canada-based actuarial software provider GGY.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. GGY had revenue of about $28 million in 2015, Moody's said Tuesday in a statement.

GGY provides actuarial software for the global life insurance industry, and its AXIS Actuarial System is used by global life insurers, reinsurers and consultants for pricing, reserving, asset liability management financial modeling, capital calculations and hedging.

“The addition of GGY's powerful actuarial solutions significantly extends Moody's Analytics' capabilities for our insurance customers,” said Mark Almeida, president of Moody's Analytics, in the statement.

GGY will operate under the name GGY, a unit of Moody's Analytics, according to a Moody's spokeswoman and will remain in Toronto.
