Why is insurance needed?

Risks and uncertainties are part of life's great adventure -- accident, illness, theft, natural disaster - they're all built into the working of the Universe, waiting to happen. Insurance then is man's answer to the vagaries of life. If you cannot beat man-made and natural calamities, well, at least be prepared for the mand their aftermath. Insurance is a contract between two parties - the insurer (the insurance company) and the insured (the person or entity seeking the cover) - wherein the insurer agrees to pay the insured for financial losses arising out of any unforeseen events in return for a regular payment of "premium". These unforeseen events are defined as "risk" and that is why insurance is called a risk cover. Hence, insurance is essentially the means to financially compensate for losses that life throws at people - corporate and otherwise.
