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”.

Berkley sells Breckenridge division to AssuredPartners unit


W.R. Berkley Corp. unit Breckenridge IS Inc. said late Thursday it has sold its insurance services division to Accretive Insurance Solutions, a wholesale and program management unit of AssuredPartners Inc.

In a statement, W.R. Berkley said it will recognize an estimated pre-tax net realized gain on investment of $86 million on the sale in the second quarter. Other financial details were not disclosed.

The division specializes in property/casualty wholesale brokerage, contract binding and program administration, and includes Breckenridge Insurance Services LLC and Breckenridge Insurance Group Inc., which does business as Breckenridge General Agency, a Breckenridge statement said.

All of the division’s staff will join Accretive, including Trever Pierce, who will continue to lead the team, the statement said.

Atlanta-based Breckenridge will continue to operate OSC Insurance Services, Southeastern Underwriters, Target Markets Program Administrators Association and Insurance Networks Alliance, the statement said.

AssuredPartners launched Accretive last year.
