Fire insurance covers damage or loss to a property because of fire. It is a specific form of insurance in addition to property’s insurance, and it covers the cost of replacement and repair or reconstruction above what the property insurance policy covers. Fire insurance policies cover damage to the property, and may also cover damage to nearby structures, personal property and costs because of not having the capacity to live in or use the property if damages occur.
THEFT / BURGLARY INSURANCE
Similarly to property insurance, it provides financial reimbursement to the owner or tenant of a structure and its contents, in the event of damage or theft. The Insurer will, at its option, by payment, repair, reinstatement or replacement, indemnify the Insured against
i) Loss of or damage to any of the Property Insure by theft following actual forcible and violent entry of or exit from the Insured Premises or any attempt thereat.
ii) Any damage to the Insured Premises by such theft or any attempt thereat that the Insured has to bear.
In addition to Burglary above, the Insurer will indemnify the Insured against loss or damage to Property Insured arising out of theft not accompanied by actual forcible and violent entry into the Insured Premises by the person or persons committing such theft, subject to losses being discovered
Money insurance will indemnify the Insured for loss of or damage to Money occurring during the Period of Insurance, up to the respective amounts stated in the schedule in the following circumstances:
(i) whilst the Money is on the Insured Premises during or after Business Hours contained:
(a) in locked safes or strongrooms.
(b) in locked drawers, cabinets, cash registers and other depository.

Liability insurance is a type of insurance policy that protects an individual or business from the risk that they may be sued and held legally liable for something such as malpractice, injury or negligence. Liability insurance policies cover both legal costs and any legal payouts for which the insured would be responsible if found legally liable. Coverage includes any financial liability incurred in addition to expenses related to the company's legal defense. There are three main types of business liability insurance: general liability insurance, professional liability insurance and product liability insurance.

Protection and Indemnity insurance
Hull & Machinery Insurance
PROTECTION AND INDEMNITY INSURANCE (P&I)
Protection and Indemnity insurance, more commonly known as "P&I" insurance, is a form of mutual maritime insurance provided by a P&I Club. Whereas a marine insurance company provides "hull and machinery" cover for shipowners, and cargo cover for cargo owners, a P&I Club provides cover for open-ended risks that traditional insurers are reluctant to insure. Typical P&I cover includes: a carrier's third-party risks for damage caused to cargo during carriage; war risks; and risks of environmental damage such as oil spills and pollution.
HULL & MACHINERY INSURANCE (H&M)
The vessel's Hull & Machinery insurance is the vessel's primary insurance against physical damage to the vessel. The vessel is insured to its full value, whereby the insurance, depending on the extent of protection chosen, compensates total loss of the vessel, salvage, partial damages to one's own vessel, collision liability, ice damages (assumes ice class), engine-damage, and the vessel's contribution to general average.
INCREASED VALUE INSURANCE
Increased Value Insurance is a cover against total loss of the insured vessel. A total loss of the vessel can put the ship-owner in a situation, where the hull value insured is insufficient to cover the costs for replacing the lost vessel. The increased value insurance makes it possible for the ship owner to replace the vessel and moderate the economic effects of a total loss. By taking out freight interest insurance the shipping company can safeguard itself against a long-term future loss of income, and in that way get cover for loss of income, which is excluded in the loss of hire insurance. The insured value of each insurance is normally a maximum of 25% of the hull & machinery insurance value.
WAR RISKS INSURANCE
Hull & Machinery and Increased Value insurance do not include cases of damage as a consequence of war like hostilities, civil unrest, sabotage, terrorism, arrest, seizure etc. These risks are covered by War Risks Insurance, which is tailor-made and adapted to the vessel's other insurances. War risks insurance could make it possible for a vessel to operate in waters hit by unrest and normally excluded from insurance cover at an additional premium and to specially agreed terms

CONTRACTORS' ALL RISKS (C.A.R) INSURANCE
Contractors' All Risks (CAR) insurance is an insurance policy that provides coverage for both damage to a property and third-party injury or damage claims. Contractors' all risk (CAR) insurance policies are considered non-standard insurance policies.
Construction projects typically involve two primary types of risk: damage to the property, and third-party claims of injury or damage. Damage to the property could include the structure not being properly constructed, or receiving damage during a renovation. Third-parties, including subcontractors, may become injured while working at the construction site. Contractors' all risk (CAR) insurance bridges these two risks into a common policy, and helps cover the gap between exclusions that would otherwise exist when using separate policies
