Insurance is shielding yourself from risk, if there’s something bad that could happen, paying insurance will protect you from losing money if it occurs. This can be insurance against illness or insuring a theme park attraction against accidents. Some forms of insurance are mandatory, such as car insurance. The core jobs in insurance involve calculating the risk of a bad event occurring and the likely cost of it, so that the insurance plan can be priced accurately.
