...Insurance Insurance is a contract in which one party known as the insured also known as assured, insures with another party (person or organization), known as the insurer, assures or underwrites his property or life, or the life of another person in whom he has a pecuniary interest, or property in which he is interested, or against some risk or liability, by paying a sum of money as the premium. Under the contract, the insurer agrees to indemnify the insured against a loss which may accrue to the other on the happening of some event. According to Investopedia, Insurance is— “A contract (policy) in which an individual or entity receives financial protection or reimbursement against losses from an insurance company. The company pools clients' risks to make payments more affordable for the insured.” At present, insurance is being used widely and becoming more and more popular both in personal life and in the business sector as a significant risk management tool which is primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent, uncertain loss. Insurance contract provides financial protection to the insured by the insurer against a loss arising out of happening of an uncertain event. The insured can avail this protection by paying premium to any insurance company with whom the contract has been made. Insurance works on the basic principle and concept of risk-sharing. When a company insures an individual entity (the insured), there legal requirements to share the risks......

...COLLEGE OF COMMERCE & ECONOMICS G. R. KARE ROAD, MARGAO - GOA INSURANCE SECTOR IN INDIA: THE PARADIGM SHIFT Meenakshi Bawa Lecturer, Department of Economics, M.E.S. College of Arts & Commerce, Zuarinagar, Goa The rapidly growing economic scene, the political attitude, cultural patterns, social values and rapid development in the Information Technology sector have brought about a significant transformation in the lifestyles in the urban and rural areas of our economy. These changes have introduced an element of uncertainty in the possible developments in all sectors; at the same time, the insurance sector also cannot remain untouched. In the present era of globalization, insurance companies face a dynamic global business environment. Radical changes are taking place due to the internationalization of activities, the appearance of new risks, new types of covers to match these new risk situations and innovative ideas on customer service. The low growth rates in developed markets, changing customer needs and the highly uncertain economic conditions in the developing world have been exerting pressure on insurers’ resources while testing their ability to survive. The globalization process has opened up new service markets to provide developing nations with opportunities for the expansion of trade and economic growth. Insurance has always been a politically sensitive subject in India. In fact, until 2000, the insurance industry was a government monopoly. But thereafter it has......

...INTRODUCTION: This report has been prepared as a requirement of the insurance and risk management course. The report was based upon the overall insurance company’s problems and prospects in Bangladesh. . It can be defined as a co-operative device to spread the loss caused by a particular risk over a number of persons who are exposed to it and who agree to ensure themselves against that risk. It is a contract whereby the insurers, on receipt of a consideration known as premium, agree to indemnify the insured against losses arising out of certain specified unforeseen contingencies or perils insured against. It can play an important role in a country’s economy. It is an old form of financial practice of sharing risk, which was introduced in this area in mid-18 the Century. DEFINITION OF INSURANCE: In legal terms, insurance is a contract of uberrima fideism, i.e. a contract of utmost god faith. Here both the parties namely insurer (insurance company) and insured (policy holder) must be honest and disclose all material facts about the insurable interest. Here the insurance company undertakes to indemnify the insured against any loss in lieu of a small charge known as premium. Such as insurance policies except life insurance allows a policy-holder to transfer all risk to the insurance company in exchange of paying a certain amount of premium.

...Manzana Insurance The Fruitvale branch is not faring well, they are behind competitor Golden Gate in new policies(375 to 326 in favor of Golden Gate), endorsements(300 to 206 in favor of Golden Gate), renewals (1,400 to 1,063 in favor of Golden Gate), turnaround time (2 days to 6 days in favor of Golden Gate), and renewal loss rate (15% to 47% in favor of Golden Gate) in the most recent quarter. The number of renewals, and endorsements at the Fruitvale branch are lower than they were for the same quarter the previous year, and the turnaround time, number of late renewals, and renewal loss rate have increased. The Fruitvale branch has performed especially poorly during the 1991. The main cause of the problems is that the Fruitvale branch processes RERUNS last because they are seen as less profitable than new policies. When RERUNS aren’t provided by the due date, it displeases customers and causes them not to choose to renew the policy with Manzana. In a market where prices are essentially identical, customers value the service they receive and how fast their requests can be processed. Therefore, since the Fruitvale branch is falling behind in this regard, the renewal loss rate is at a record high. Additionally, if a renewed policy is late, the insurance agent is likely to suggest another agency to customers, thus adding to the low retention rate. To make matters worse, only 15% of RAPs become RUNs, so they aren’t acquiring a large number of......

...Insurance as an industry has secured a vital position in the development of the nation’s economy. An efficient insurance market is essential to achieve integration into the global economy and sustainable strong economic growth. In conjunction with the forces of global consolidation, current advances in information technology and the potential of e-business mark the beginning of a veritable efficiency revolution in the insurance industry. One of insurance's key roles is safeguarding the financial health of small and medium-sized enterprises. In addition to the protection provided by social security systems, insurance cover is crucial for people to insure themselves against inability to work, set aside money for retirement or protect themselves against the loss of their assets. Insurance reduces the investment risk faced by companies and the state. Many companies find it far more expensive, if not impossible, to take out a loan without purchasing the requisite insurance protection. Insured, thereby reduces the costs of raising the capital they need. By reducing investment risk, insurance can also encourage companies to think more long term and increase their risk tolerance. A lot of investments in new production facilities and newly founded companies would never happen if every company was required to have the necessary financial means to make good every conceivable loss. While arguable, it is no exaggeration that the availability of insurance is sometimes being heralded as a......

...Insurance is a subject matter of solicitation which means insurance has to be requested or asked for and not forced upon. But in reality majority of people never ask or request for insurance but are reluctant to buy insurance for some or the other reason. India being a hub of insurance industry, with enormous scope and development is still facing serious issues in terms of health insurance. According to study, as of now still major population of India is not covered under health insurance.

In this research we will try to determine the past and future of the health insurance industry in India, the growth of the industry and companies, benefits and importance of health......

... Nottingham, NG9 1LQ Introduction Flood insurance is becoming increasingly popular here in the UK, as flooding is becoming more common in specific areas, given the climate change recently. There are many reasons for floods, such as river bursting its banks, an example being the houses near the Thames river being prone to flooding due to the likelihood that it could burst it banks after a period of heavy rainfall. Problems like this can occur up near Trent Road, Beeston as it is near the River Trent, so I am writing this report for Anna Yang so she can think about what factors to take in account when thinking about buying a house. Should Anna be worried about the risk of flooding on Trent Road, Beeston? According to the Environment Agency, (Environment Agency, 2014) Trent Road in Beeston is located in a Flood Zone 3 area, which means the yearly probability of the river flooding is 1 in 100, or greater than 1%. If Anna were to stay in the house for ten years, it would have a probability of flooding ranging from 9.6% to 28.5%. (Diacon, S. 2014) The probability is expressed as a range due to the fact that it would always be uncertain to some degree as the climate change in the UK changes so regularly, and also flood risk simulation model that the Environmental Agency use has some uncertainty too, as it too is dependent on the climate, and how often it rains, so they can warn people to take action or not. In comparison, insurance companies would also have information about...
