Insurance

The concept of insurance is lost in the mists of time, considering that it was in Greece and Rome that forms very close to what we understand as insurance existed today. The first known contract dates from 1347, but different documents exist in the Genoa city archives, such as a discharge from 1329, which are interpreted as insurance contracts.
Portugal was also not late with this “innovation” and between 1367 and 1383, a Law from the reign of D. Fernando made maritime insurance mandatory for all ships of more than fifty tons in the country. The contributions were delivered under the concept of mutuality, with a percentage of two crowns per hundred of the profits from the trip.

What is a
Insurance Contract?

The insurance contract is an agreement through which the insurer assumes coverage for certain risks, committing to satisfy compensation or pay the insured capital in the event of an accident, under the agreed terms. In return, the person or entity that takes out the insurance (the policyholder) is obliged to pay the corresponding premium to the insurer, that is, the cost of the insurance.

The provision of what was agreed in the contract can be made to the person or entity in whose interest the insurance is concluded (the insured) or to a third party designated by the policyholder (the beneficiary) or to a third person or entity who has suffered losses that the insured must compensate – the injured third party.
Insurance can be mandatory (when the respective conclusion is required by law) or optional (when it is the policyholder’s choice to take it out or not).”
