New rules to see some takaful companies separating life and general operations

PETALING JAYA: Although the Islamic Financial Services Act (IFSA) is expected to see some takaful players, especially those with a composite licence, split their life and general operations, it has not deterred their gameplan to strengthen and grow their takaful business amid the growing and competitive Islamic insurance landscape.

The Financial Services Act (FSA) and the IFSA are likely to come into effect by mid this year and would, among others, require conventional and takaful insurers to relinquish their composite licences, and conduct their life and general insurance businesses under separate units or subsidiaries.
