Ancient Era Insurance (遠古時代的保險)
EARLY RISK INSTRUMENTS
The earliest known instance of insurance dates back to the Babylonian period circa 2250 BC when the Babylonians developed a type of loan insurance for maritime business. Examples can be found in the Code of Hammurabi. 汉谟拉比法典 現存于羅浮宮 (中國商朝)
The first methods of transferring or distributing risk in a monetary economy were practiced by Chinese and Babylonian traders in the 3rd and 2nd millennia BC, respectively. Chinese merchants traveling treacherous river rapids would redistribute their wares across many vessels to limit the loss due to any single vessel’s capsizing. The Babylonians developed a system that was recorded in the famous Code of Hammurabi, c. 1750 BC, and practiced by early Mediterranean sailing merchants. If a merchant received a loan to fund his shipment, he would pay the lender an additional sum in exchange for the lender’s guarantee to cancel the loan should the shipment be stolen or lost at sea. England in the mid-18th-century Merchants and shipowners very largely insured their own ventures themselves, but the need for discounting facilities arose after 1750 with the growing volume of bills drawn against West Indian merchants. Thus some of the more important Liverpool merchants began to exercise the functions of banking
Insurance became more sophisticated in the Enlightenment era Europe, and specialized varieties developed. Some forms of insurance developed in London in the early decades of the 17th century. For example, the will of the English colonist Robert Hayman mentioned two “policies of insurance” taken out with the diocesan Chancellor of London, Arthur Duck. Of the value of £100 each, one related to the safe arrival of Hayman’s ship in Guyana and the other was in regard to “one hundred pounds assured by the said Doctor Arthur Ducke on my life”.
