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”.

Ryan sets up group captive for auto liability risk


Ryan Specialty Group Holdings Inc. on Wednesday said it had formed a group captive that will offer $2 million in buffer layer capacity for auto liability risks.

AXSAL Re, which is managed by Ryan Specialty unit Keystone Risk Partners, is a member-owned group captive managing general underwriter designed for transportation companies or other policyholders with large fleets, a Ryan statement said.

AXSAL Re will distribute through insurance brokers and agents. The buffer layer is usually the layer between primary and excess layers.

The $2 million buffer layer auto liability limit can attach above a minimum of a $1 million primary policy. The product is designed to attach in the most challenging layer within the first $10 million of an auto liability tower, according to an email from Doug Deitch, president of Keystone Risk Partners.
