GLOSSARY OF TERMS - GENERAL INSURANCE

Self-insurance :- the retention of risk by an individual or organisation, as distinct from obtaining insurance cover. Large commercial concerns may opt for self-insurance on the grounds that they are avoiding the extra expenses and profit loadings of an insurance policy and have sufficiently strong finances to cope with their likely losses. In practice, they will typically still seek insurance against very large losses by having insurance contracts with very high excesses. Effectively, having any non-zero excess implies a level of self-insurance.Owning a captive insurance company is a means of arranging for self-insurance, with cover for very large losses being arranged by the captive by means of reinsurance.
