Insurance & Risk Management and Space


Insurance provides risk mitigation through a contract binding a party to indemnify another against specified loss in return for premiums paid.

Due to the high actual and perceived risk of space ventures, it is critical for space systems asset holders to accurately determine the associated risks, to engage actuaries to quantify those risks, and the insurance industry to provide affordable coverage against the loss of the assets at risk.
