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”.

Argo to sell specialty property business to Westfield


Specialty insurer Argo Group International Holdings, Ltd. said Thursday it has agreed to sell the renewal rights of its U.S. specialty property business to Westfield Insurance Co.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Argo Group president Marsh Duncan said in a statement the deal supports the company’s strategy of reducing volatility.

The transaction includes Argo’s shared and layered property business, which underwrites catastrophic-focused excess and surplus property coverage.

The statement said several members of Argo’s U.S. special property team will have the option to join Westfield.

Westfield Center, Ohio-based Westfield Insurance Co. said in July it was entering the specialty insurance business and has named veteran executive Jack Kuhn as president of the new venture.
