The History

The founders of the insurance system were Chinese merchants. In the days of ancient civilization, when merchants traveled along rivers by ship and boat, there was a practice of mixing goods. This was done in order not to lose, not to spoil a specific group when the ship was flooded. The first insurance company was established in 1666 in England. A huge number of destructive blazes have led to the need to introduce a system of property insurance in case of damage or destruction by fire. In the middle of the XIX century, health and life insurance appeared.
