CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1            BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The management of an insurance company, like any other business outfit, has an aim or purpose to pay claim in return for payment of premium. The insurance company undertake numerous activities in their operation usually assessing the extent to which the risk presented in any respect departs from normal and if so, to what extent additional hazard can be mitigated at what rating consideration.  A process known as premium rating is used to decide vohat price you should change to.
