RGA appreciates the growing importance of Islamic reinsurance or Retakaful. With the guidance of RGA’s Shariah Advisory Council and our experienced local leadership team, RGA plays a key role in helping Takaful operators achieve strategic goals and financial success.
Takaful is a system of Shariah-compliant insurance based on the principle of mutual assistance and voluntary contribution for the common good. Risks are shared collectively and voluntarily by a group of participants. Takaful and retakaful are the Shariah-compliant alternatives to conventional insurance and reinsurance, respectively.
In September 2009, RGA began operating a Retakaful Window in Labuan, Malaysia as part of our commitment to serving the Family Takaful market. RGA adopted the Wakalah-Mudharabah operating model.
