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”.

Surplus lines premiums increased 32.4%, to $31.4 billion in the first half, according to the U.S. Surplus Lines Service and Stamping Offices’ 2022 midyear report, which was issued Tuesday.

Stamping offices typically report higher premiums in the third and fourth quarters than in the first and second, “and most predict dynamic economic factors will drive continued growth for the surplus lines market for the balance of 2022,” according to the statement issued by the Kansas City, Missouri-based Wholesale & Specialty Insurance Assn.

The WSIA reported in July 2021 that surplus lines totaled $24.04 billion in the first half of the year, up 21.9% from the year-earlier period.
