Amãna Takaful, one of the fastest growing composite insurers in Sri Lanka, recently declared open a new office premise in Hambantota, the bastion of development in the south.

The move to Hambantota by Amãna Takaful is meant to support the development taking place in the area. The branch will provide tailor made insurance solutions to the people who are going through rapid economic progress in the region. Hambantota marks the 21st branch to be established by the company catering to all segments of society having its operations spread to cover all parts of the country including the Northern and Eastern Provinces.
“We serve all Sri Lankans and stand here in Hambantota today to deliver our exceptional products and services to its people.
