General takaful licences up for grabs? 

Insurance News

  -  June 24, 2013
HSBC Amanah Takaful, PruBSN, HLMT and maybe even CIMB Aviva Takaful are considering disposing their general takaful business, given that under IFSA their family and general takaful businesses are to be separated into 2 legal entities with minimum capital of RM100 mil each. The small size of their general takaful business means that injection of new capital is hardly sensible from commercial point of view.
Takaful companies plan to dispose general biz - The Sun Daily PETALING JAYA (June 24, 2013): At least three Islamic insurers are considering disposing their general takaful business ahead of the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013 (IFSA), which comes into force next month.
