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”.

Beazley to establish Lloyd’s syndicate pegged to ESG metrics


Beazley PLC said Monday it has received initial approval from Lloyd’s of London to establish a syndicate that will offer additional capacity to businesses that meet environmental, social and governance rating metrics.

Syndicate 4321 will start underwriting from Jan. 1, 2022, and will be led by Will Roscoe, head of the market facilities division, the London-based specialty insurer said in a statement.

In the initial phase the syndicate will accept directors and officers, health care, financial institutions, London market U.S. cyber, property, marine hull, marine cargo and aviation business.

The syndicate has been set up under the Lloyd’s syndicate-in-a-box framework and will operate as a consortium arrangement led by Beazley Lloyd’s syndicates 623 and 2623.

“Evidence demonstrates that businesses with high ESG ratings are likely to have a lower risk profile,” Mr. Roscoe said in the statement.
