Has anybody tried this? To underwrite insurance contracts on trade? How did it work for you?

Gave the order that merchants give a small fee based on cargo & risk, also put money aside in case of larger claims, I think it works as a sort of self funding sinking fund. Have had the scheme running for a number of years now, some years it makes a profit but mainly it seems to break almost even. I does boost confidence of the merchants, well that is at least what my honourable & undoubtably honest ministers tell me.
