Expert’s Eyes

 One of the biggest functions of insurance is to relieve victims of accidents and disasters by paying insurance money. For relief of victims, arrangements such as compulsory automobile liability insurance and aviation insurance are mandated as part of public policy. On the other hand, as seen in a recent insurance case using FinTech, it is also possible to encourage policyholders' disaster prevention and disaster mitigation behavior by the amount of insurance premiums. I have been researching to analyze such insurance functions for controlling accidents and disasters, and to reflect them in the policies.
