Pecuniary Loss Insurance

These are those insurances where the insurance company indemnifies the insured for the loss of the economic performance that could have been achieved in an act or activity, had the loss described in the contract not occurred.

For example, there is an interruption in the production of a factory as a result of a breakdown covered by the insurance policy. In this case, the insurer will indemnify the insured for the economic loss caused by the breakdown (loss of profits).
