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”.

Reinsurers post higher premiums, losses


U.S. property/casualty reinsurers wrote $64 billion in net premium in the first nine months of 2022, up 11.7% compared with the same period last year, according to a report released Friday by the Reinsurance Association America.

The 17 reinsurers tracked by the RAA reported a 101.7% combined ratio, deteriorating from 100.7% for the 2021 period. A combined ratio of more than 100% indicates an underwriting loss.

Policyholder surplus for the group decreased 3% to $239 billion.
