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”.

Munich Reinsurance Co. will hold a majority stake in Global Aerospace Underwriting Managers Ltd. after agreeing to buy an additional 11% of shares in the London-based aviation insurance provider.

Following the purchase from National Indemnity Co., a unit of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., Munich Re will own 51% and National Indemnity will own 49%, Global Aerospace said in a statement Thursday.

Global Aerospace issues policies on behalf of a pool of insurance and reinsurance companies.

Further, Munich Re’s share of the pool will increase by 5% to 49.96% from January 1, 2019.

“Munich Re has long had a strategic interest in increasing its investment in Global, and this deal achieves that, while ensuring that Berkshire Hathaway continues to have a very significant interest,” Nick Brown, Global Aerospace’s group CEO said in the statement.
