INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Multiline Insurance'

Many different varieties of multiline contracts exist, and they cover a wide range of risk exposures. The basis behind multiline contracts is that a firm often is exposed to a portfolio of risk, and instead of creating a portfolio of insurance policies to manage that risk, they should use a single multiline contract to manage the portfolio of risks. One insurance contract is then more efficient and less costly than many contracts.
