The profitable distribution of exposure serves as a checkmate. It serves as an intermediary among the standard, preferred and poor risks. With its even distribution and classification of risks in business, it places the poor risks to be at par with the preferred risks.
Thereby, the standard risk is placed at the middle to limit the effects of these risks. The main reason why these distributions are implemented is for the protection of the insurer from inordinate selections. In this way, the insurer is protected from making selections that will breed more risks than required.
