Gatehouse JV into Takaful
"We're for the first time offering global corporations Takaful support from London, the world's leading insurance market," Richard Bishop, CEO of GNL Insurance told The Islamic Globe.
He said: "Up until now large multinationals that have required global Shari'ah compliant insurance solutions have been forced to use small brokers in Asian and Gulf countries, whereas they can now be serviced from London."
The new firm will provide a global gateway for corporate and institutional clients seeking commercial risk protection, with its initial mandate being the provision of insurance for real estate, trade finance and financial institutions.
GNL's first client is Chartis UK a diversified global risk solutions leader. For several years Chartis has recognized the importance of Takaful financial products and through Chartis Takaful in Bahrain has been offering Shari'ah compliant commercial and consumer products since 2006.
