KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara and the Finance Ministry have granted decisions-in-principle to Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Bhd (STMB) for its proposed reorganisation.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, STMB said, the Finance Ministry has decided to grant a family takaful business licence to the company under its new name, Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Keluarga Bhd (STMKB).
The ministry has also approved a general takaful business licence to a new company, which would be a wholly-owned unit of STMKB, Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Am Bhd, it said.
“The granting of the approval is subjected to the operational and system readiness of the single licensees upon completion of the Scheme of Transfer, where a new family takaful business licence certificate will be issued to STMKB and a new general takaful business licence certificate will be issued to STMKB respectively, in exchange for the current composite takaful licence certificate,” it said. — Bernama
