  • It is exactly a decade after the East-Asian Financial crisis of 1997-98 that the world is saddled with yet a much bigger and deeper financial and economic turmoil. The East-Asian Financial crisis was mainly due to the serious structural weaknesses of the East Asian economies where rapid economic growth for over seven years was not supported by genuine growth engine. Rather it was fuelled by rapid monetary growth, current account deficits, negative Savings-Investment gaps and short term capital inflows. The vulnerability was further enhanced by overvalued exchange rate and reduction in foreign capital inflow.

  • Since its inception in 1979, the takaful industry has rapidly grown particularly in Muslim regions, namely the Middle East, North Africa and South East Asia. Presently, its double-digit growth rate continues though at a decremental rate. Quite the reverse, other components of the Islamic financial system (i.e. Islamic banking and Islamic capital market) maintain an incremental growth trend. In terms of Islamic financial assets, Islamic banking comes first in terms of both size and growth whilst takaful lags behind. Theoretically, within this system, general takaful products are complementary to the Islamic banking debt-based financing products that constitute the major share of Islami...

  • Marketing takaful products does not imply exploiting the religious factor alone. Equally important is the distribution channel. As a marketing tool the agency system is vital. Insurance agents who sell policies are not employees to the insurance operators. They work on commission basis and thus, motivated by the volume of sales made. By using agents, insurance companies can cut overhead costs and help expand markets without using or setting up new costly subsidiaries. The first Takaful operator in Malaysia, Syarikat Takaful Malaysia Berhad (STMB) did not use the agency system. STMB says that it is against the Shari[ah law to apply the contract of Agency (al Wakalah) in the takaful bus...

  • Authors: Ismail, Norashikin; Alhabshi, Syed Othman; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath (2011)

  • This study analyzes the coexistence of two different organizational forms of insurance, namely Takaful and conventional insurance. We analyze the efficiency of different organizational forms in 13 countries for the period 2007-2011. Technical, allocative, cost, and revenue frontiers are estimated using data envelopment analysis. We test the expense preference hypothesis and efficient structure hypothesis. We find evidence for the efficient structure hypothesis and expense preference hypothesis in selected market segments. The results provide insight into the competitiveness of conventional and Takaful insurers from different countries.
