The 11th International Takaful Summit will be held in London from 11-12 July 2017. For over a decade now the Summits have served as a cornerstone and leading thought forum of the industry. This year’s event will be one of the most significant gatherings to date in light of the ever changing geopolitical climate.
With the UK still coming to grips with the Brexit vote, there has been a concerted effort for the insurance industry to look further afield to leverage its expertise in serving emerging markets and is positioning London as a hub for Takaful. The conference will be a platform to discuss how the global Islamic insurance sector can capitalise on the experience of London’s insurance market in order to drive growth.
In addition to the challenges specific to Takaful companies such as low penetration rates, distribution channels, suitable investment vehicles and the lack of qualified practitioners, the conference this year will discuss a number of operational issues that are affecting global business such as cyber security, digital disruption, data analytics and the use of robotics to reduce costs. Randa Buaras, Event Organiser at Afkar Consulting, said the conference priority this year will be "to produce a practical industry guide that both identifies and tackles the full spectrum of challenges and opportunities which lie ahead of the industry." Adding, "It is with this in mind that we are proud to introduce a new Executive Round Table on Monday 10th July, sponsored by Norton Rose Fulbright, where a select number of the leading Takaful and insurance experts will construct a set of recommendations for the industry’.
The International Takaful Summit will also feature the International Takaful Awards. We will celebrate the 10th anniversary of these Awards which still remain the only dedicated awards ceremony for the Takaful industry. The gala awards ceremony, which is the social highlight of the Summit will take place on the evening of 11th July and is sure to be a glitzy affair celebrating outstanding achievement and innovation in the global takaful industry ’, added Ms Buaras.
The International Takaful Summit will be held from 11-12 July 2017 at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel London, Kensington.
