recent years and takes a lot of casualties, both fatalities and property,
such as reminding us of the need for insurance. For every member of
society including the business world, the risk for experiencing

transfer mechanism), which transfer risk from one party (the insured) to
another party (the insurer). Risk transfer is by no means eliminates the
possibility of misfortune, but the insurer to provide financial security
