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”.

SEC awarding more than $10M to whistleblower


The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said Monday it is awarding more than $10 million to a whistleblower who provided information and assistance that “significantly contributed” to a successful SEC enforcement action.

The SEC said the whistleblower provided important documents and met twice with the SEC’s enforcement staff.  It said the charges in the enforcement action “had a close nexus with the whistleblower’s allegations, which were critical to the underlying investigation.”

Whistleblower awards are paid out of an investor protection fund financed through monetary sanctions paid to the SEC by securities law violators.
