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”.

Premium renewal rate changes for most standard commercial lines remained in positive territory in November, according to a report released Monday by insurance exchange Ivans.

Workers compensation was the only line tracked that saw declines, with rates falling 1.8%, but that was an improvement on the prior month when rates fell 2.2%.

Commercial auto premium renewal rates increased 3.2% on average, the Tampa, Florida-based unit of insurance technology firm Applied Systems Inc. said in a statement. General liability premium rates increased 1.7%, umbrella rates increased 1.2%, commercial property rates rose 2.8% and business owner’s policy premium renewal rates increased 4%.

The monthly Ivans Index analyzes more than 120 million data transactions and measures the premium difference year-over-year, according to the statement.
