Introduction definitions and terms
INTRODUCTIONDefinitions and terms

  • Insurance

    • Two main elements

      1) Financial intermediation

      2) Contractual relationship

  • Loss (definition of)

    • Types of losses

      • Direct Loss

      • Indirect Loss

  • Chance of Loss

    • Number expected / Total exposed = Fraction


Introduction definitions and terms1
INTRODUCTIONDefinitions and terms

  • Peril - The cause of a loss or contingency that causes a loss

    • “Named peril” or Specified peril contracts

    • ”Open-peril" contracts

      • burden of proof

  • Hazard

    • Something that increases the probability of loss or increases the severity when a loss occurs

      • physical, moral, morale


Introduction definitions and terms2
INTRODUCTIONDefinitions and terms

  • Proximate cause of the loss

    • Also known as Doctrine of proximate cause

    • First insured peril in an unbroken chain of events leading to the loss - all is paid.


Introduction definitions and terms3
INTRODUCTIONDefinitions and terms

  • Risk - many definitions - the term is used in a variety of ways

    1) To describe that there is a possibility of loss

    2) To identify the probability of loss

    3) To identify the cause of loss - peril

    4) To identify conditions that increase frequency of severity of loss - hazard

    5) To identify the property or person exposed

    6) To identify the potential $ amount of loss

    7) To describe the variation in potential losses – the ability to predict


Objective risk relative variation from expected
Objective Risk - relative variation from expected

  • Degree of risk – the ability to predict

  • Not the same thing as probability of loss

  • Law of large numbers

  • Coefficient of variation = s/x = % of variation expected relative to the mean

  • OBJECTIVE RISK V. THE PROBABILITY OF LOSS






Risk types
Risk - types

  • Subjective Risk - individual’s mental attitude concerning loss

  • Pure Risk - exposure that can only result in a loss or no change (two possible outcomes)

  • Speculative Risk - exposure that can only result in a loss, no change, or gain (three possible outcomes)


Risk management
Risk Management

  • Logical process used by firms and individuals to deal with exposures to loss.

  • Involves pre-loss planning concerning the use of post-loss resources to minimize overall costs.

  • Continuous process that identifies exposures and decides how to deal efficiently with them.

  • Post-loss activities puts the plans into action.


Insurance works well when
Insurance works well when:

  • Many individuals purchase

  • Few people collect

    • Keeps rates affordable


Mathematical basis for insurance example
Mathematical Basis for insurance - Example

  • Houses in pool 10,000

  • Avg. value of each $ 80,000

  • Total property value $ 800 million

  • Predicted losses = 1.5% of value $12 million

  • Predicted Loss per house $ 1,200

  • Rate per $100 of value $ 1.50


Mathematical basis for insurance example continued
Mathematical Basis for insurance - Example continued

  • Insurance Premium

    • Cost of losses $ 1.50

    • Admin. costs .45

    • Reserves for unexpected losses .10

    • Investment Earnings (0.07)

    • Rate per $100 value $ 1.98


Concepts
Concepts:

  • Cash flow underwriting

  • Loss ratio

  • Expense ratio

  • Combined ratio

  • Salvage
