Use "policyholder" in a sentence
"The manner in which insurers are able to provide adequate security to the policyholder is to create a capital base by "spreading the risk" of losses among several policyholders."
"For a long time, a well-known problem in connection with insurance is that damage to insured objects depends not only on external factors such as weather and attempted theft, but also on the care taken by the policyholder, which is costly for an insurance company to monitor."
