Loss of profits

Type of insurance which protects the gain that would have been obtained if the circumstances that caused the loss had not occurred.

For example, if, as a result of a fire, an industry has to stop production, this insurance guarantees an indemnity that is proportional to the profits it would have obtained under normal operating conditions (with the limitations and exclusions stipulated in the policy).
