(i) Insurance provides certainty: Insurance provides certainty of payment at the uncertainty of loss.

Moreover, if the subject matters are not adequate, the self-provision may prove costlier.
(ii) Insurance provides protection: The main function of the insurance is to provide protection against the probable chances of loss. The time and amount of loss are uncertain and at the happening of risk, the person will suffer the loss in absence of insurance.
(iii) Risk-Sharing: The risk is uncertain, and therefore, the loss arising from the risk is also uncertain. When risk takes place, the loss is shared by all the persons who are exposed to the risk.
