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”.

Allianz to pay $6B over Structured Alpha fraud, fund manager charged


(Reuters) — Germany's Allianz SE has agreed to pay about $6 billion and a U.S. asset management unit will plead guilty to fraud after a group of multibillion-dollar investment funds collapsed amid market turmoil triggered by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.

The U.S. Department of Justice, which announced the payout and plea, also said Gregoire Tournant, the former chief investment officer for the funds, is being indicted for conspiracy, securities fraud, investment advisor fraud and obstruction of justice.

Allianz's payout includes a $2.33 billion fine, $3.24 billion of restitution and $463 million of forfeiture, according to a plea agreement.
