In simple words, Insurance is transferring your risk of a potential and possible loss to another (generally an Insurance company); the price you have to pay for this is called premium, and the Insurance company is required to compensate for any loss which may arise. Thus, insurance is taken as a risk management measure.


In law and economics, insurance is a form of risk management primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent, uncertain loss. Insurance is defined as the equitable transfer of the risk of a loss, from one entity to another, in exchange for payment. An insurer is a company selling the insurance; an insured, or policyholder, is the person or entity buying the insurance policy.
