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 strengthens the company’s presence in the south, already having its offices situated in Galle and Matara. The branch was ceremoniously declared open by M. Shaheed Usuph, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Hambantota.

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. With the ever escalating development in the south and the increased economic activity, our move to Hambantota is timely. As one of the fastest growing insurance companies in Sri Lanka we wanted to be one of the early movers to the market and ensure that our customers are provided with the highest level of service,” said Fazal Ghaffoor, Chief Executive Officer of Amãna Takaful, speaking at the opening ceremony attended by prominent businessmen, professionals and members of the financial services fraternity.   

The branch will offer the full range of General and Life insurance products and customers can avail themselves of solutions for corporate, SMEs and individuals.

“The company has great hopes for the branch and we want to be part of the development taking place in the country’s Southern Province. We have big plans for the future and this is the first step,” said Sumedha Mirihana, Senior Regional Manager Southern and Sabaragamuwa Province.
