Takaful offers significant opportunities for insurance industry growth Stcoks—11 Jul 17

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia and LONDON--11 Jul--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Milliman, Inc., a premier global consulting and actuarial firm, today released the findings of the first known study analysing the general and the family Takaful industries, separately, across all major markets. The full report will be released and discussed at the International Takaful Summit in London today.

"While there have been a few reports analysing the US$14.9 billion Takaful market, they typically provide a combined analysis," said Farzana Ismail, head of Milliman's Life Insurance and Family Takaful consulting practice in South East Asia. "Since drivers for general Takaful can be significantly different from family Takaful, there has been concern around the distortion caused by analysing them together and demand for a separate analysis. This report helps meet that demand."

"The GCC region dominates the global market penetration of Takaful, which grew 14% in 2015," said Safder Jaffer, Milliman's managing director for the Middle East & Africa. "However, a closer look at the market reveals that there is virtually insignificant penetration of family Takaful, providing a huge opportunity for growth."
