  5. 5. Insurance and Risk Management <ul><li>Insurance is protection against possible financial loss; it gives you peace of mind. </li></ul><ul><li>An insurance company, or insurer, is a risk-sharing firm that assumes financial responsibility for losses from an insured risk. </li></ul><ul><li>People purchase a policy and the firm assumes a risk for a fee called the premium, which the insured policyholder pays periodically. </li></ul>10-2
  6. 6. Types of Risk <ul><li>Risk is - Uncertainty or lack of predictability, such as the loss that a person or property, covered by insurance, faces. </li></ul><ul><li>Peril: is the cause of a possible loss, such as fire, windstorm, robbery, disease, or death. </li></ul><ul><li>Hazard: increases the likelihood of a loss, such as driving drunk, or defective house wiring. </li></ul><ul><li>Negligence: is the failure to take ordinary or reasonable care to prevent accidents. </li></ul>10-3
  7. 7. Coverage and Type of Risk <ul><li>Pure Risk. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal risks, property risks, and liability risks are types of pure risk. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Insurable, chance of loss, not gain. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accidental, unintentional. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nature and financial loss of the risk can be predicted. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Speculative Risk. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Chance of loss or gain, such as starting a business. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Uninsurable. </li></ul></ul>10-4

Risk Avoidance <ul><li>You can avoid traffic accidents by not driving. </li></ul><ul><li>A car manufacturer can avoid risk of product loss by not introducing new cars. </li></ul><ul><li>These are not practical and have serious tradeoffs. </li></ul><ul><li>However, you take precautions in high crime areas to avoid risk of being robbed. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Risk Reduction <ul><li>Decreasing the likelihood that risks will cause you harm. </li></ul><ul><li>Wearing a seatbelt to reduce the risk of injury in a car accident. </li></ul><ul><li>Not smoking to reduce the risk of developing lung cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>Eating properly and exercising regularly to reduce the risk of illness. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Risk Assumption <ul><li>Taking on responsibility for the negative results of a a risk. </li></ul><ul><li>It makes sense to assume a risk if the possible loss will be small </li></ul><ul><li>For example, not purchasing collision insurance on an older car. </li></ul><ul><li>If insurance coverage of an item is expensive it might not be worth insuring. </li></ul><ul><li>Self insurance is setting up a special fund or savings to cover cost of loss. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Risk Shifting <ul><li>The most common method of dealing with risk is to shift it. </li></ul><ul><li>In exchange for a fee you pay, the insurance company agrees to pay for your losses. </li></ul><ul><li>A deductible is the amount that the policyholder must pay per loss on an insurance policy. It is a combination of assumption and risk shifting. </li></ul>

  16. 16. Property and Liability Insurance <ul><li>Liability: legal responsibility for cost of another person’s losses or injuries. </li></ul><ul><li>Liability due to negligence . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Failure to take ordinary, reasonable care, such as failure to supervise children in a pool. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Vicarious Liability. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When you are held responsible for the actions of another person, such as your child throwing a ball through a neighbor’s window. </li></ul></ul>10-8 (continued)
