DEFINITION of 'World Insurance '

A commercial liability policy with extended global coverage. World insurance provides coverage in the event the policyholder is sued anywhere in the world. In general, however, commercial liability policies have a geographic limit for coverage. It is common for companies with global operations or who have contracts with international partners/associates to purchase this type of world coverage. This added coverage requires the policyholder to pay an additional premium.
