Abstract

In today’s insurance market there is a void that is any one person can have several insurance policies, this entails different providers, different payment schemes etc. There is an opportunity for an insurance company to unite all policies and create a universal insurance (UI) policy, an all in one so to speak. There is an argument that such an policy would be very complex and costly as it would require several specialists to analyse every facets of the purported policy. This need not be the case.
