Industri takaful catat pertumbuhan pantas

Sumber: Berita Harian, 2hb Oktober 2008

Industri takaful dan takaful semula terus mempamerkan pertumbuhan yang pantas dan kini semakin mendapat pengiktirafan sebagai satu komponen utama sistem kewangan Islam secara keseluruhannya.

Bagaimanapun, Ketua Eksekutif Institut Perbankan dan Kewangan Islam Malaysia, Datuk Dr Adnan Alias, berkata perniagaan takaful semula di Malaysia masih terhad dari segi kapasiti.

Sehubungan itu, industri itu mempunyai peluang besar untuk berkembang lagi.

“Dari segi takaful, pertumbuhannya amat menggalakkan manakala takaful semula sedang mengikuti rapat, walaupun industri itu diperkenalkan lewat,” kata Adnan pada taklimat Persidangan Kewangan Islam Antarabangsa 2008 keenam di Kuala Lumpur, baru-baru.

Re-takaful business yet to pick up in Malaysia

Munich Re Group, the first foreign company to operate a re-takaful business in Malaysia, finds that many takaful operators are not duly concerned about syariah compliance when it comes to re-insuring their risks.

In an interview with The Edge Financial Daily recently, its chief executive (Greater China and Southeast Asia) Ulrich Trumpp said the company would continue to help increase awareness of the availability of syariah-compliant re-takaful.

“There has to be a change management process and we cannot expect behaviour to change overnight,” he said, adding that Munich Re’s value proposition was to give takaful operators an option of offering fully syariah-compliant products.

“Otherwise, we also have the conventional re-insurance,” Trumpp said.

UAE-based financial services company Dubai Group is not the first to venture into the Islamic reinsurance business but it aims to be among the biggest.

It recently tied up with Malaysian government investment arm Khazanah Nasional and Asia Capital Reinsurance Group Pte Ltd (ACR) to set up the world’s largest retakaful company, ACR ReTakaful Holdings Ltd, with a capital base of US$300 million (RM975 million).

Under the partnership, Dubai Banking Group and Khazanah will hold 40% stake each in the Islamic reinsurance company, while ACR will take the remaining stake.
