Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Javed Ahmed, MD & CEO, Jubilee Life Insurance said, ‘Bancatakaful is the commencement of a new chapter in the Shariah compliant market and a means of strategically penetrating through the industry which has witnessed prodigious growth in Pakistan; penetration is the foremost benefit that the insurance carriers gain out of a Bancassurance alliance. We appreciate the success of our current Bancassurance relationship with HabibMetro Bank and this Bancatakaful partnership will reinforce the alliance and provide us with an additional opportunity to expand our product portfolio. Through this partnership, we intend to offer banking clients our custom designed Bancatakaful solutions without compromising on their religious values.”

He said, “Joining hands with one of the leading life insurance companies in Pakistan is another step towards the expansion of our product portfolio, which also aims to cater the broader financial needs of the HMB customers. With the continued support of our business partners, we hope to add maximum value to our customers’ wealth management solutions and extend our Shariah-compliant product base for our Islamic segment.”
