Underwriting Risk

Underwriting Risk

The risk that what an insurance company collects in premiums and investments will not be enough to cover its expenses from paying claims on its policies. This differs from its risk of loss, which is the risk that its income will be insufficient to cover all expenses, not just those related to policies.
