Dubai Islamic Insurance and Reinsurance Company (AMAN Insurance), the largest Islamic Insurance provider in the UAE, has been named as a Silver Partner for this year’s edition of the World Takaful Conference, the world’s largest annual gathering of Takaful industry leaders, which opens today (April 15, 2013) and will run until April 16, 2013 at the Dusit Thani Dubai. Now on its eighth year, the conference is expected to attract the participation of over 400 industry leaders from all over the globe. AMAN CEO and Managing Director Hussein Al Meeza was one of the keynote speakers during the event's opening plenary. The theme for this year's conference is 'New strategic imperatives for the Takaful industry: Sustaining growth and boosting profitability.'
Recent industry reports have indicated the untapped growth potential of the Islamic insurance segment, which is now being reflected in the growing interest of leading conventional insurance companies and major banks as well. Looking to play an important role in the projected growth, the World Takaful Conference serves as a strategic platform to showcase cutting edge innovations and discuss the roadmap to development for the rapidly growing Takaful market.
“The whole world is fast taking notice of the immense potential that Takaful insurance offers, along with the many benefits and advantages to be gained from using Islamic based insurance products,” said Meeza. “Our participation as a Silver Partner for this year’s World Takaful Conference demonstrates our eagerness to be a part of the Takaful insurance industry’s growth. It is also an honor and privilege for me to be invited as one of the opening speakers. Surely, we will be highlighting the many products and services that AMAN has launched over the last few months while at the same time discuss initiatives and programs that will help forward the industry to more growth not only for the region but for the rest of the world.”
This year’s edition will also include a World Takaful Exhibition, which will open during the second day of the event. The exciting two-day conference also featured eight sessions that covered timely and important topics like the move to manage the industry’s shift to profitability; enabling operators to improve operational efficiency and mainstreaming Takaful in today’s key markets, to name a few. Aside from Meeza, the event also featured other industry experts.
