UNDERSTANDING RISK


It would be IMPOSSIBLE to protect yourself and your DEPENDANTS against every potential RISK you face. But if you are going to work hard, borrow or put money aside and INVEST it in EDUCATION, it makes sense to protect that investment as BEST you CAN.

Insurance is a means of PROTECTION from financial loss. It is a form of RISK MANAGEMENT, primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent or uncertain LOSS or EXPENSE.

Managing your risk involves a little bit of THOUGHT and PLANNING to identify where you might be vulnerable to loss or damage.

Most of us engage in SIMPLE risk management STRATEGIES every day.

We drive CAREFULLY, put our salaries straight into a bank account, LOCK our house or car when we leave them, and keep our wallets, handbags and mobile phones with us when we go to a cafe or a park.

In insurance terms, THE RISK is the CHANCE something harmful or unexpected COULD happen.

This might involve the LOSS of INCOME, theft, or damage to valuable property and belongings, or it may involve someone DYING or being INJURED.

Insurers ASSESS and price various RISK to work out how much they would need to PAY OUT if a policyholder suffered a loss for something covered by the policy. This helps the insurer determine the amount (PREMIUM) to charge for insurance.

The amount you have to pay is shown in the POLICY SCHEDULE, which the insurer will send you when the cover has been ARRANGED.

Insurance premiums are often OVERLOOKED for opportunities to affect MEANINGFUL SAVINGS but, ironically, this is where savings are the EASIEST to implement. This is due to the COMPETITIVE and ever-evolving nature of the insurance INDUSTRY.
