Insurers may remain cautious about the opportunities brought about through cyber insurance but 2018 could be a boom year for the industry, a report has suggested. This year’s 2017 General Insurance Barometer, released by J.P Morgan and Taylor Fry, surveyed insurers, brokers and reinsurers about the challenges and opportunities brought about by the advent of cyber.
As technology and wider industry changes take hold of the industry, what does the future hold for brokers? James Baum, Aon Australia’s new CEO, said that the role may change but brokers will only become more important to their clients. “I think while there may be differences, the things that make us brokers and the things that are important about being a broker will only become more important,” Baum told Insurance Business.
It is a story many in the industry will be familiar with, but one incoming CEO has his mother to thank for his journey in insurance. Incoming Aon CEO James Baum revealed his path to the top of one of the country’s biggest brokerages and said his mother was to thank for his start in the industry. “I left university and had very little idea of what I was going to do but I was lucky enough to have a forceful mother who was not going to let me sit back and do nothing,” Baum told Insurance Business.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
