The Insurance Sector and the Problem of Asymmetric Information

Dr. Rabia Tugba Egmir

Abstract: The insurance sector plays an important role in risk management and financial security. However, the existence of asymmetric information between policyholders and insurance companies in the insurance sector poses a significant problem. This means that policyholders have more information about their risk profile and insurers do not have full access to this information. Individuals who benefit from insurance services may engage in risky behaviors due to this information. As a result, the potential for losses for insurance companies and an increase in total risk may occur. Public regulations are needed to minimize the risk of asymmetric information, which is likely to occur in the insurance sector. This study aims to explain the importance of the existence of asymmetric information in the insurance sector by taking into account the aforementioned importance.
