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”.

Axis estimates more than $100 million in Michael losses

Axis estimates more than $100 million in Michael losses

Insurer and reinsurer Axis Capital Holdings Ltd. said on Thursday that it expects losses in the range of $100 million to $120 million from Hurricane Michael, which hit the southeastern United States last month.

The pretax loss estimate is net of reinsurance and retrocessional coverage and includes estimated reinstatement premiums, the Bermuda-based insurer said in a statement.

Axis said its loss estimate “is consistent with industry insured losses of approximately $10 billion.”

Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida panhandle on Oct. 10 as a Category 4 storm. While it is one of the most intense hurricanes on record to make landfall in the United States, it did not hit a major population area and insurance losses were limited.
