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 launches fidelity bond for financial firms

Chubb Ltd. on Tuesday launched a financial institution fidelity bond for asset managers.

Risks covered by the bond often stem from employee fraud, computer hacking and impersonation of executives, clients and counterparties, Chubb said in a statement.

The insurer said the bond is designed to respond to the changing risks associated with advancements in technology used by advisers to manage assets.

The coverage limit is $25 million and includes: financial loss resulting from unauthorized access to computer systems by hackers, including the use of malware and viruses; unauthorized access to a policyholder’s network, including mobile applications and customer web portals; the transfer of policyholder or customer capital through fraudulent instructions over the internet, email or telephone; and impersonation of an employee or a known vendor that causes funds to be fraudulently transferred by an authorized employee.
