Named perils insurance
An insurance policy that names specific risks covered by the policy.
Named Perils Insurance
A homeowner's insurance policy that only provides coverage for events named in the policy. For example, a named perils policy may cover tornadoes and fires, but not hurricanes and burglaries. These policies are less expensive than comprehensive policies; named perils insurance is designed to cover only the most likely events. However, comprehensive policies themselves do not cover all likelihoods, and a named perils policy may also serve as supplemental insurance to fill holes in one's broader policy.
