Siraj Holding, a private investment firm, has announced the acquisition of Al Hilal Takaful from Al Hilal Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB).
With this acquisition, Siraj Holding marks a new phase of operations for Al Hilal Takaful and establishes it as the premier provider of various Takaful solutions for individuals, employers, and government entities across the UAE.
The acquisition is poised to strengthen the Shariah- compliant Islamic insurance offerings with enhanced services for the clientele.
The transaction was approved by the Shareholders, the Securities and Commodities Authority, the Insurance Authority, and was in line with all other regulatory norms. The firm plans to rebrand and align with the new leadership and group operating model following the completion of the regulatory formalities.
“With the limited number of Takaful institutions in the market, we have long observed a gap in services and offerings in the sector. Our vision is to refine the offerings in the industry and develop tailormade solutions for today’s consumers in the UAE. We will do this by adopting innovative technologies and developing new approaches. We are also bringing together a league of experts to transform Al Hilal Takaful into a world-class insurance frontrunner and are committed to offering clients outstanding solutions for all their protection needs,” said Ahmed Khalaf Al Otaiba, Chairman of Siraj Holding.
