KEY POINTS

Insurance is a contract between an individual or a business and an insurance company, whereby the insurance company agrees to cover the insured, through a policy, against the risk of loss, damage, or theft.




Insurance is a contract between an individual or a business and an insurance company, whereby the insurance company agrees to cover the insured, through a policy, against the risk of loss, damage, or theft.

Insurance not only protects against risks and uncertainties but also provides a savings and investment channel.

Life insurance, for instance, facilitates a savings culture through regular contribution of premiums while also acting as a mode of investment since the insured gets the lump sum amount at the maturity of the contract.

Insurance is also a crucial aspect of financial planning since it provides stability and peace of mind to the insured. However, it is important to note that not all risks can be insured.

The three major types of insurable risks are;

  1. Personal Risk – This is any risk that can affect the health or safety of an individual,
  2. Property Risk – This is any risk that can result in a partial or total loss to property, and,
  3. Liability Risk – The personal or business risk resulting from being found liable to another party due to negligence or intentional actions which lead to loss to another person.

Given the complex nature of insurance contracts and products, it is sometimes difficult for the insured to understand the specific type of policy they need and also understand the scope and nature of the policy. This is where an Insurance Agent comes in.

An insurance agent is an entity that is authorized by an insurer to act as an intermediary between the insured and the insurer.

Insurance agencies are majorly categorized as either Captive/Inclusive agents who represent a single insurer or Independent agents who can represent more than one insurer.

Insurance acts as a safety net for your property and provides security and stability for you and your family. This helps reduce stress and enhance peace of mind.

While money cannot replace the presence of a family member, taking covers such as life insurance can help in ensuring that even after one is gone, the family and dependents have some funds left to endure any financial hardship.
