  • Insurance simply put is the transfer of risk to a third party who is prepared to bear it in return for a fee. That is to say if you worry about the risk of a certain event, a fire for example and the damage the event can cause, in return for paying a premium to an insurance company, the insurance company agrees to pay the cost of damages (usually a defined amount) to the insured.
  • There are two types of insurance for consumers. The first, Life insurance, provides a benefit in the event of death to the insured persons dependants. Which in effect means that in return for paying an annual or semi annual premium to a life insurance company, upon death, the insurer agrees to pay a benefit to your loved ones. This may sound morbid, but in reality should the death be unexpected, it provides a source of finance for your dependents, and gives them a source of income should the primary income earner no longer be around.
  • The second type, general insurance covers all kinds of general risk everything from home and contents to car insurance. So for example should you have a burglary or fire at your house, the cost of reimbursing your house for damage or loss is undertaken by the insurer. Similarly with car insurance, should you have an accident, or your vehicle requires repairs, that cost will be borne by the insurer in return for a regular premium payment.
