Amãna Takaful distributes surplus to policyholders

As Amãna Takaful PLC celebrates its 20th year in operations, the Board of Directors have awarded a surplus refund to be distributed amongst their non-claimant policy holders – staying true to the spirit of Takaful.

As opposed to conventional insurance, the Takaful concept not only benefits claimants but also takes care of non-claimants. Non-claimants receive a proportionate share of the surplus from the risk fund at the end of a defined period. By virtue of being, a Takaful policyholder one becomes a participant of the risk pool. The risk pool meets all claims of the membership among other expenses. In the event of a surplus in the risk pool, non-claimants among the participants are entitled to a proportionate share of the proceeds.

“Being the only pure and pristine Takaful operator in the country, we are very focussed in our pursuit to achieve sustainable growth and profits through which we are delighted to share a surplus this year,” commented Amãna Takaful PLC Chief Executive Officer Fazal Ghaffoor. “In our commitment to serve all communities, we have currently expanded and hope to further strengthen our extensive branch network, to widen our footprint in all parts of the island,” he added. 

“Whilst thanking our customers for subscribing to products and services of Amãna Takaful PLC, we look forward to their valuable patronage in the future. We shall make every endeavour to keep rewards coming your way over the years,” he concluded.

Amana Takaful staff will visit the 8,400 recipients throughout the country and deliver the surplus refund cheques.
