2. Insurance: Qualified individual who evaluates an insurance proposal to assess the kind and degree of risk involved. He or she then determines how much premium should be charged for protecting the applicant against losses that may arise from the risk.
3. Securities trading: Person or firm that buys a new issue of bonds or an initial public offering (usually as a syndicate with other underwriters) for reselling it to the public at a profit.
