You didn’t realize you were going too fast at the time, but know you’re busted as soon as you hear those sirens behind you. The cop asks for your proof of insurance, and you start digging through your glove box for your most recent car insurance card. You know you have your insurance id card, but forgot to clean out a few old ones. You’re sitting there trying to figure out which is the newest, and your heart is racing as the cop stands there at your window, just waiting for you.

The insurance industry continues to be an enabler of innovation. Since its creation three centuries ago, it has become an essential part of the global economy — providing security and resilience to businesses and individuals alike.
