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”.

Broker acquires renewal rights to some Marsh, JLT Specialty business


Startup broker McGill & Partners on Wednesday said it has entered into an agreement with Marsh Ltd. and JLT Specialty Ltd. to acquire the renewal rights to certain specialty business from Marsh in London for an undisclosed amount.

The business being acquired involves mainly third-party wholesale or independent brokers who compete with Marsh for retail business, the specialty brokerage said in a statement.

The deal will see an undisclosed number of JLT and Marsh staff join McGill & Partners in London, some of whom have already been hired, a spokesman said.

Including the staff in this transaction, the company has hired approximately 135 staff to date from 26 countries who will work on all the new business McGill & Partners takes on board as it builds out its business, the spokesman said.

The deal is expected to close in September, the spokesman said.

“We look forward to serving clients at a time when underwriting conditions are more challenging and high-quality placement expertise is in strong demand,” said Steve McGill, CEO of McGill & Partners in a statement.

McGill & Partners, backed by private equity firm Warburg Pincus LLC, was launched in May.
