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”.

Business Insurance reveals US Insurance Award finalists


Business Insurance on Friday announced the finalists for the 2021 U.S. Insurance Awards program.

Recognizing that major achievements are seldom the work of individuals working in isolation, the awards honor teams of professionals working on specific projects in the commercial insurance and risk management sector.

The finalists were selected by senior Business Insurance staff from nominations submitted to the publication.

A panel of risk managers will assess the finalists, and the highest-scoring team in each category will be announced at a virtual awards event on Sept. 30. For more information on the event, click here.
