What is Insurance Rates ?

Insurance Rate is calculated as (a unit cost of insurance policy, multiplied by an exposure) which will give you the premium of the policy. To make it more clear, Insurance Rate is the amount of money that will cover losses, expenses and profits to insurance companies on a single exposure. For example, in Life Insurance, the rate may be expressed as N5 for every property worth N1000 you exposed.

One often get confused between insurance Rates and premium. Take note, these two terms are not the same. The rate of an insurance policy is what determines it premium. Before insurance companies will put a price tag(premium) on a particular policy, they would have calculated the risk involved in such policy, how much will cover the risk, and how much profit they will make after expenses. These three factors are what determines the rate of an insurance policy.
