Risk Retention denotes acceptance of the loss or benefit arising out of a risk when it takes place. It may also be termed as self insurance. This strategy is viable when the risks are small enough to be transferred at a cost that may be higher than the loss arising out of the risk itself. On the other hand, the risk can be so big that it cannot be transferred or insured. Such risks will have to be phased out when the eventuality occurs.
