addressing the gathering
Amãna Takaful recently kept to its promise of ‘redefining insurance’, by announcing a 15 percent payment of SURPLUS to its non-claimant policyholders. Amãna Takaful is the only insurer in Sri Lanka who shares a part of the SURPLUS from its risk fund at the end of a defined period. SURPLUS is commonly referred to as underwriting profit by insurance companies and usually forms part of a company’s retained profits. This signifies the company’s commitment to sharing and also makes the net cost of insurance cheaper for non-claimant Takaful policyholders.
One of the few ISO certified insurance operators in Sri Lanka; ATPLC established in 1999 pioneered the concept of Takaful in Sri Lanka challenging the traditional insurance concept through its unique and equitable mechanisms. ATPLC also operates three key strategic business units that specialise in Life, General and
Medical Takaful, and offers a unique approach to serve its respective customer segments. Amãna Takaful’s range of solutions includes; General insurance policies covering Fire, Burglary, Motor and Marine insurance. In the Medical category, several health insurance solutions for individuals and corporates are fashioned and tailored to suit various needs. KruthaGuna, an award winning one of a kind product targeting the medical insurance requirements of senior citizens, is one of Amãna Takaful’s key innovations within the industry during the recent past. In the Life category, the company offers child education, retirement, medium and long-term protection and investment solutions, mortgage protection and Group Life solutions for corporates. Amãna Takaful reaches out to all customer segments in Sri Lanka through its twenty-five branches island-wide.
