Insurance Underwriter Test Assessment

Insurance underwriters review individual applications for insurance to evaluate the degree of risk involved and determine acceptance of applications. They decide if applications for insurance cover (risks) should be accepted and, if so, what the terms of that acceptance are.

They effectively grow the assigned book of business and develop a market share of profitable business while protecting a company from financial loss through accurate and effective underwriting techniques and methodologies.
