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”.

SageSure turns ‘unicorn’ after $250 million funding round: Source


(Reuters) — SageSure became a “unicorn” after the property insurer raised $250 million in its latest funding round, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

A unicorn is a startup that is valued at or above $1 billion.

SageSure's latest fundraising was led by specialty brokerage Amwins and investment company Flexpoint Ford, the Jersey City, New Jersey-based company said in a statement.

SageSure, which provides insurance coverage for coastal residential and commercial properties, also counts alternative investment manager Ares Management Corp. and U.S. regional bank Citizens Financial Group among its backers.

Amwins and Flexpoint will each appoint a representative to SageSure's board of managers, the company said.

The startup funding space has been crimped since last year following the Federal Reserve's interest rate hikes, which have drained excess liquidity and spooked venture capital firms from signing on big checks.
