The insurance risk transfer analysis is a process that is followed through for the purpose of insurance transaction. The purpose of this analysis is to examine a particular risk within the context of the relevant insurance contract. This is then transferred to another group of people who will not want such a risk and then to those who will want such a risk and even pay a fee for it. Hence, this shows transference of the policy from one insured group to another for the purpose of gaining premium.

This is especially seen in home insurance purchases where one is paying the company a certain premium so that it is able to take up the risk of mortgage payments etc. This also is relevant when there is any kind of property damage and the insurance company will take care of all the consequences and other details. This analysis is done frequently and is complex but it is necessary.
