How does insurance work?
Insurance acts as a risk transfer mechanism where individuals and organisations pay a premium based on their degree of risk. Once agreed the Insurer issues a policy confirming they have accepted the risk transfer and will indemnify the individual or organisation (subject to the agreed terms and conditions).
