ABSTRACT
This article discusses various ways the insurance industry offers to protect firms' earnings. As globalization increases, an array of political risk coverage is available, as is business interruption insurance. There is also policies for the many ways that e-commerce can be disturbed. Better and more sophisticated risk management techniques have opened new areas to insurance. Any factor than can impact earnings but is separate from management's ability is open to insurance. This allows a firm to transfer risks.
