Re-takaful Products in a Nutshell

  • Mohd Ma’Sum Billah


Re-Takaful or Islamic reinsurance is essentially about handling risk. It is a risk aversion method in which the Takaful ceding company resorts to either a conventional reinsurer or a Re-Takaful operator to reinsure originally insured risks against an undesirable future situation if the risk insured were over and above the normal underwriting or claim. Thus, a Takaful ceding company may, based on limited financial resources, hedge against possible incapability to meet all Takaful reinsurance protection from a financially capable reinsurer, which will thus take over the coverage of the large proportion of the risk.
