Fairness (as an objective of insurance pricing). Premium rates are set according to expectation of loss among a classification of policy owners. The premise is that all insureds with the same characteristics should have the same expectation of loss and should be listed under the same underwriting classification. For example, in life insurance, individuals with a good personal health history, family health history, a job with no special hazards, and who are of good character, should be classified as standard risks and thereby pay standard rates.
