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 opens Colombian office


Lloyd’s of London has opened an office in Bogota, Colombia.

Juan Carlos Realphe serves as Lloyd’s Colombia country manager, according to Tuesday’s statement.

Lloyd’s insurers, Advent Capital Holdings Ltd. and Brit P.L.C. will be represented on the Lloyd’s Colombia platform alongside the Lloyd’s representative office, according to the statement.

“Colombia is a growing economy which is making significant investments for the future. However, insurance penetration is one of the lowest in Latin America, at only 1.6% of GDP,” John Nelson, Lloyd’s chairman, said in the statement. “As Colombia realizes its economic potential, insurance and reinsurance can play a key role in supporting this economic growth by improving resilience, taking risks out of the country, and helping the economy recover after catastrophes.”
