Takafol Insurer Sets Up In Bahrain



Aman Bahrain Insurance Co. has been formed with $20 million in capital from Dubai Islamic Insurance & Reinsurance, Al Salam Bank and other investors.



A spokeswoman said the new insurer has not yet announced what coverages it will write.



Sultan Saeed Al Mansoori, chairman of Dubai Islamic Insurance & Reinsurance, said in a statement that the new insurer’s formation was prompted by feasibility studies that “showed a high demand for Islamic takaful insurance” in Bahrain.



That demand was “the main reason that encouraged us to establish an Islamic insurance comp any in Bahrain,” he said.
