INSURE VS ENSURE
INSURE (“institutional, guarantee of restitution upon loss, negative”)
Insure means to safeguard against loss or damage, typically through the purchase of insurance to do so. If a contract stipulates that the individual must insure something the contract is stipulating that the individual must purchase insurance to safeguard that asset.
ENSURE (“personal, warranty of due diligence, positive”)
Ensure is very similar in that it means to make sure or guarantee something, though the specific emphasis on doing so via insurance is not there. If a contract stipulates that an individual must ensure something is taken care of there is no requirement to purchase insurance, rather the individual is to “do their best” to make sure something is taken care of.
