We are delighted to welcome Dubai Islamic Insurance & Reinsurance Company (AMAN) as a platinum partner of WTC 2010, joining Takaful Re, SALAMA - Islamic Arab Insurance and Noor Takaful.

Chakib Abouzaid
Chief Executive Officer
Takaful Re

"After four editions, the World Takaful Conference (WTC) has become one of the main Takaful events around the world. We in Takaful Re are committed to the Takaful industry; it is our duty to support this event and make it even more successful. With the recent recession, and questions about Islamic Finance in general, and the Takaful industry in particular, Takaful operators and professionals must now question their business models and practices, respond to legitimate customers' questions; and also pave the way for more differentiation from conventional insurance in order to think and act Takaful. The World Takaful Conference is the best forum to discuss such matters, and we would like to see the delegates making the WTC sessions an even more rewarding experience."

Other leading international players partnering with WTC 2010 include Ernst & Young, LM Investment Management Ltd, Abu Dhabi National Takaful, Munich Re ReTakaful, A.M. Best, Clyde & Co, Mashura Financial Services, FWU Group, and Milliman.

Join the industry leaders today!

WTC 2010 will explore how the leading Takaful players are re-inventing their strategic models and shifting from investment to underwriting income as the key driver of future profitability in the international Takaful markets.
