Valuation Basis

  • Marine Cargo Insurance policy is made a "Valued Policy" in which the Sum Insured is agreed between the Insured and the Insurer.
  • The Sum Insured could be full value of the Invoice or CIF Value.
Insurable Interest    As the cargo owner, you certainly have insurable interest in your cargo itself. However, the distinguished of the marine cargo insurance is that you may choose to insure 100% or 110% of value of your cargo to cover other insurable interest of yours as following examples:
  1. Anticipated profit: If a cargo arrives safely at its destination, the consignee may naturally gain profit by selling it. This anticipated profit is insurable, and is normally added to the insured amount of cargo itself by fixing it at 10% higher than the CIF value thereof; or
  2. Increased value: If the market price of cargo increases considerably during the voyage and the cargo is lost or arrives at the destination in a damaged condition, the consignee may suffer a loss of the increased value of the cargo. In order to protect him against such a loss, the increased value can be insured. This increased value is normally 10% as per international practice.
