Fire and Marine Insurance Pricing


Fire and Marine Insurance Pricing:

The principle of utmost good faith is applicable even for fire and marine insurance.

E.g.: If a trader while taking a fire insurance policy does not disclose the previous occurrence of fire in the factory, and subsequently after taking policy, there is another fire, the insurance company may refuse to pay the compensation if it learns about the previous occurrence of fire which was not disclosed at the time of taking the policy.


The pricing in case of fire and marine insurance is done on the basis of:


      Past Experience: If a fire or marine insurance company has a past experience of settling a claim successfully then, the credibility of the company increases and it charges higher premium for similar policies. The customers are assured that the company will be able to handle the claim well as it was done in past and hence they are ready to pay higher premium.
