Event Risk


Risk of loss associated with fortuitous occurrences (e.g., fires, hurricanes, tortuous conduct). Event risk, which is synonymous with pure risk, hazard risk, or insurance risk, presents no chance of gain, only of loss. The perils covered by traditional property-casualty (P&C) insurance products are within the realm of event risk.
