The evening commenced with long standing customers, business
partners, service providers and staff were appreciated for their patronage,
association and service to grow, sustain and spread the Takaful concept in Sri
Lanka. In its true spirit of sharing and in keeping with the tenants of
Takaful, the company recently presented all non-claimant General Policyholders
a payment of surplus amounting to 15 percent, an increase from last year’s 12.5
percent.
In 2013, Amãna Takaful concluded another significant year of
achievement, recording an impressive profit after tax of Rs. 117 Mn, an eight
fold increase over the previous year’s restated profits. 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. ATPLC has been
serving customers by providing a range of competitively superior insurance
solutions. Through its range of products, the company continuously strives to
deliver an exceptional standard of service that meets the needs of its diverse
customer groups.
