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”.

Truist Insurance Holdings’ organic growth down sharply


Truist Insurance Holdings’ organic revenue growth dropped to 2.1% in the second quarter from 11.6% in year-earlier period, parent company Truist Financial Corp. reported Thursday.

However, total revenue, for the unit formerly known as BB&T Insurance Holdings rose 4.4% to a record $621 million, from $595 in the year-earlier period. Net interest income slid 0.8% to $23 million, from $25 million in last year’s second quarter.

Noninterest income climbed 4.9% to $598 million, from $570 million, and net segment income grew 12.6% to $125 million, from $111 million in the prior-year period.

Net acquired income dropped to just $4 million for the quarter from $34 million in the year-earlier period, and new business was down 4% “due to COVID-related impacts,” Truist Financial said.

Second-quarter results benefited from “continued property/casualty price increases and better-than-anticipated exposure units,” it said.

Truist Financial reported results for the insurance unit, one of the company’s three publicly reported businesses,  during a second-quarter earnings call.

SunTrust Banks Inc. and BB&T Corp. merged in 2019 to become Truist Financial.
