Third Party Event

09 Apr 2018

The WTC is the leading and longest running global forum for Takaful and has played an instrumental role in the development of the industry for more than a decade by connecting key markets like the GCC and south-east Asia to emerging markets, in turn facilitating thought-provoking discussions, producing quality research and generating actionable insights.

As the industry navigates through the complex global insurance landscape, there is a greater need for its leaders to share insights and deliberate on new strategies to help it grow beyond its niche status. 

Leading regulators and industry leaders who will keynote this year’s edition include: Ebrahim Obaid Al Zaabi, director general, IA; Abdulla Al Awar, CEO, Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre; Salmaan Jaffery, chief business development officer, DIFC Authority; and Dave Matcham, CEO, the International Underwriting Association of London.

The 2017 conference included the inception of the inaugural InsurTech Integrated – a dedicated stream highlighting the importance of developing digital proficiency amongst insurance and Takaful operators in a climate of fierce competition. On the back of overwhelmingly positive feedback, InsurTech-focused discussions will once again feature prominently at this year’s WTC.

Highlights of the 13th WTC include: keynote speeches by regional regulatory authorities and global leaders in insurance and Takaful; conversations with leading economists in the region; a power-packed CEO debate discussing the future of Takaful; a dedicated InsurTech stream; one-on-one interview with a Shari’ah scholar on innovation and InsurTech; live polling on key issues relating to Takaful; a dedicated WTC exhibition; and a host of plenary sessions with industry leaders, regulators, economists and technology gurus around the key themes affecting the broader Takaful industry.
