The Borneo Post - - HOME -

KUALA LUMPUR: Taka­ful Ikhlas Ber­had, a wholly owned sub­sidiary of MNRB Hold­ings Ber­had ( MNRB), has signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing for a 5 year strate­gic col­lab­o­ra­tion with Agrobank.

Taka­ful Ikhlas was rep­re­sented by chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer (Fam­ily) Wan Rosli Sha­harud­din Wan Yaa­cob and chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer ( Gen­eral) Jef­fry Shah Ab­dul Wa­hab while rep­re­sent­ing Agrobank were its chief fi­nan­cial ser­vices of­fi­cer Datuk As­muni Sudin and chief ser­vices of­fi­cer Mad Yu­sof Yazid in the strate­gic part­ner­ship sign­ing cer­e­mony.

Wit­ness­ing this event were Taka­ful Ikhlas pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Ab Lat­iff Abu Bakar and Agrobank pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Wan Mohd Fadzmi Wan Oth­man.

Ab Latif said the col­lab­o­ra­tion makes it pos­si­ble for both par­ties to make a good and com­pre­hen­sive busi­ness pro­jec­tion.

“More­over, it also ful­fils the cus­tomers’ need through Per­sonal Ac­ci­dent Taka­ful, Mortgage Taka­ful ( MRTT), Group Credit Term Taka­ful ( GCTT), Group Fam­ily Taka­ful, Fam­ily Taka­ful Plans for ed­u­ca­tion, re­tire­ment and med­i­cal, Mo­tor Taka­ful, Fire Taka­ful and other Non-Mo­tor Taka­ful,” he said.

He added the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Taka­ful Ikhlas and Agrobank was not some­thing new as it had started since more than 10 years ago.

“To­day’s MoU is for a pe­riod of 5 years for both Fam­ily Taka­ful and Gen­eral Taka­ful. This proves the readi­ness and com­mit­ment be­tween both par­ties to strengthen the part­ner­ship for a longer pe­riod of time. We are pleased to be granted the trust and hence be ap­pointed as their Pre­ferred Taka­ful Part­ner,” he stressed.

Wan Mohd Fadzmi said both Agrobank and Taka­ful Ikhlas Ber­had share a com­mon goal, that is to pro­vide a com­pre­hen­sive and Syariah- com­pli­ant fi­nan­cial ser­vices which is ben­e­fi­cial to the cus­tomers.

“Based on this spirit, we have agreed to take the col­lab­o­ra­tion to an­other higher level - namely a 5-year col­lab­o­ra­tion for Taka­ful Ikhlas as the Pre­ferred Taka­ful Part­ner. We are de­ter­mined to strengthen the col­lab­o­ra­tion we cur­rently have with the main ob­jec­tive to de­velop a spe­cial taka­ful cov­er­age for the agro group as well as for the ‘un­served’ and ‘un­der­served’ groups,” he added.

To start the col­lab­o­ra­tion, Taka­ful Ikhlas and Agrobank launched Agro Nu­rani which is a Taka­ful Plan specif­i­cally cre­ated for the Dis­abled. The Taka­ful pro­tec­tion is the first of its kind in the coun­try.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Taka­ful Ikhlas and Agrobank will launch an ed­u­ca­tional taka­ful plan around mid-year this year.
