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”.

Chubb discloses wildfire loss, updates hurricane estimate

Chubb Ltd. expects to report $225 million in fourth-quarter pretax losses related to California wildfires, the insurer said on Monday.

The insurer also said it expects its losses from Hurricane Michael, the Category 4 storm that slammed into Florida in October, will be at the upper end of its previously disclosed range of $150 million to $250 million before taxes.

After taxes, the fires, which have ravaged large areas of California, will cost the insurer $195 million during the quarter, Chubb said in a statement.

Last month, catastrophe modeling firm Risk Management Solutions Inc. said total combined insured losses from the Camp fire in Northern California and the Woolsey fire in Southern California could hit $13 billion.
