About The Summit

The growth of the International Takaful industry and demand of Shariah compliant financial products has seen The International Takaful Summit grow from strength to strength, dubbed by delegates and sponsors alike as “The Takaful event of the Year”. The summit is now in its 11th year, the event on average attracts over 350 – 400 international delegates. What is unique to other commercial events is that this summit is created for the industry with the considerable support of the industry. The event is by invitation only and unlike other events the summit is free of charge to attend as it is fully subsidised by the hosting organisations and supporting sponsors.

ITS Delegates

In an industry filled with conferences, summits and workshops on Islamic finance, there is a keen need for outstanding events of excellent calibre that draw new institutions as well as industry stalwarts together. ITS takes great pride in achieving this through targeted delegate invitations and supremely focused events organised by a team of industry researchers.

The Summit has so far seen over 4000 International delegates participate from over 52 countries. Our delegates are top decision makers, Chairmen, Board Members, CEO’s, Presidents, Executive Directors, Vice President and other Senior Executives.

Industry participation also benefits from a dynamic platform ranging from government institutions, leading Takaful & Retakaful organisations, legal and academic delegates.

Watch ITS 2016 Highlights

Key stakeholders made presentations on leveraging the expertise in the London market to enhance global Takaful provision. They highlighted the fact London would be receptive to working with Takaful Operators to create a win-win strategy. This was further reinforced in the closing keynote address by Inga Beale, CEO, of Lloyd’s of London who reiterated the commitment of the leading insurance market to welcome Takaful providers.

Welcome Message

We are very pleased to welcome you all to the Twelfth International Takaful Summit. The Afkar Group has pioneered the International Takaful Summits in London since 2007. The continuing evolution of Takaful provision in many countries has provided the backdrop for our Summits over the last eleven years. Over this period our aim has been to complement the vision of the pioneers of Takaful in Sudan and Malaysia and provide a forum for debating the successes and challenges facing the Takaful industry.

There are exciting developments which can assist in the growth of the Takaful and Re-Takaful industry. We have a potential Shariah-compliant MGA-based solution for the provision of Re-Takaful for large risks by using the capacity of the global reinsurance industry. The London Market is also eying the Takaful market to bridge any shortfall in business resulting from Brexit. In this Summit, we explore the obstacles and challenges in the way of realising this potential.

As more global actors are getting interested in micro insurance and Micro-Takaful provision to create financial inclusion, we also bring key participants together to discuss how this can be done in a sustainable way.

We continue to deepen our understanding of the kind of insurtech solutions emerging which will challenge traditional ways of Takaful provision and open new vistas for the industry. Again, in the technology space, we explore the challenges posed by cybercrime and the Takaful/insurance solutions that may be required to be offered by providers to enable clients of the industry to effectively mitigate these risks.

Finally, many stakeholders in the Takaful industry are now feeling that the pendulum has moved too far in the direction of risk transfer solutions and are calling for a move back to mutuality and re-booting of the Takaful models. In this Summit we have allowed time to capture this debate as it could prove to be a watershed moment for the Takaful industry.

In the International Takaful Summits we endeavour to enable market participants from all over the world to capture the potential for Islamic Finance and Insurance in the world. At every Summit, we strive to offer robust thought leadership and the most informed platforms and opportunities for our participants to get maximum benefit from this interaction.

This year’s summit builds on the eleven past successful events held in November 2007, July 2008, July 2009, July 2010, July 2011, July 2012, February 2013, February 2014, February 2015, February 2016 and July 2017.

We welcome you to International Takaful Summit 2018 and hope that you will become one of our many regular participants and supporters.
