Kuala Lumpur, Au­gust 2, 2017 – The Malaysian In­surance In­sti­tute (MII) on Au­gust 2 held a one-day Gen­eral Taka­ful Agents Con­ven­tion 2017 in part­ner­ship with the Malaysian Taka­ful As­so­ci­a­tion.

The con­ven­tion was at Lanai Ki­jang, Bank Ne­gara Malaysia, and at­tracted more than 150 in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als and key play­ers who dis­cussed, and ad­dressed chal­lenges and solutions in gen­eral taka­ful.

Par­tic­i­pants also learnt cur­rent busi­ness is­sues, trends, de­vel­op­ments and prac­tices in gen­eral taka­ful within the agency force.

MII CEO Dato’ Haji Syed Mo­heeb Syed Ka­marulza­man re­it­er­ated the im­por­tance and rel­e­vance of the con­ven­tion as a plat­form to

gain in­sights and ex­pe­ri­ence on three key ar­eas – mar­ket in­dus­try up­dates, in­dus­try level dis­cus­sion and net­work­ing.

“Gen­eral taka­ful is a rel­a­tively new mar­ket and as such the con­ven­tion is an op­por­tune plat­form for in­dus­try play­ers to come to­gether to learn and be ex­posed to new knowl­edge and ex­per­tise as well as to de­bate in­dus­try is­sues and sug­gest solutions. This is an im­por­tant av­enue if the in­dus­try is to progress and sus­tain growth.

“The MII is also hon­oured to col­lab­o­rate with MTA to or­gan­ise the con­ven­tion be­cause the MII as­pires to be a holistic provider of in­surance ed­u­ca­tion to a broader spec­trum of the in­dus­try that cov­ers life, gen­eral and taka­ful. The tie-up with MTA is our ini­tia­tive to serve the taka­ful sec­tor,” he said.

MTA Chair­man Muham­mad Fikri Mo­hamad Rawi re­minded par­tic­i­pants to take full ad­van­tage of the con­ven­tion to learn and ex­tract knowl­edge from the dis­tin­guished line-up of sea­soned in­dus­try speak­ers and pro­fes­sion­als.

“I would like to ex­press my thanks to the MII for help­ing or­gan­ise this year’s con­ven­tion and to our dis­tin­guished speak­ers who have gen­er­ously agreed to share their knowl­edge with us. It is an ideal cat­a­lyst to gain know-how and in­sti­tute change,” said Fikri.
