 What is insurance?

Insurance is basically a contract, having a policy, in which a person gets financial protection or reimbursement against losses. In other words, Insurance is something in which a company and a client share risk.

History of Insurance:

Insurance is known from 4000-3000 BC. At that time Babylon called this agreement a bottomry contract. It was also found in Hindus in 600 BC and Greece knew and understood about such a contract as early as the 4th century.

Under a bottomry contract, loans were granted to traders. The loan will be not repaid if the shipment was lost in the water. On the other hand, the risk of insurance would be covered by the interest on the loan. Marine insurance became highly developed in the 5th century.

In Rome, there were also burial societies that paid funeral costs of their members on monthly dues bases.

Different companies have different policies available for their clients. Some of the most common types of personal insurance policies are auto, health, and life.

In the United States, a person can have one of the mentioned insurances, and Car insurance is required by law.

Insurance companies make money because they measure the risk and decide whether it is

worth it or not.

Massachusetts state law required all insurance companies to take an initial stock subscription of $100,000.

After the company began operations and built sufficient reserves to meet regulatory requirements, the 31 stockholders were paid back in 1867, the stock was retired, and MassMutual functioned as a mutual company.
