HNB Assurance Takaful: In a Nutshell

 1. About Us

Here at HNB Assurance, we pride ourselves on providing innovative solutions to satisfy the various needs of our customers. With that in mind, we decided to promote HNB Assurance Takaful. This is the first company in Sri Lanka to get clearance from the Insurance Board of Sri Lanka (IBSL) to operate as an ‘Islamic window’ model insurance operation.

2. What is Takaful?

Takaful is an alternative to conventional insurance. This is based on the principles of Sharia, where a group of people pool their financial resources to guarantee each other against  loss/damage which they may encounter.

Takaful Is about believing in togetherness and being there for one another during times of need

3. Products Offered

Broadly speaking, HNB Assurance Takaful focuses heavily on Mortgage Reducing Takaful, which is aimed at homeowners or those who are looking to buy land/renovate a house. On the other hand, HNB General Takaful offers both motor and non motor Takaful solutions. The non-motor Takaful solutions cover Fire, Construction, Medical and Marine Takaful.

4. Benefits Offered

  • Surplus: is paid at the end of the financial year on the surplus left in the risk fund, it shall be distributed to Participants on agreed ratio based on the type of Takaful plan, provided that the Participant has not incurred any claim and/or the Certificate Holder has not received any benefits payable under each type of cover under this certificate whilst it is in force.
  • Protection/Coverage (guarantee and agreement to look after each other in the event of loss or damage that may be inflicted upon them)
  • Investment Profit (any profits from investment is shared by participant and the operator)

5. How does Takaful work in practice?

Its as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Takaful works on the basis of an agreement made by the parties involved in the Takaful insurance scheme.
  2. Each party agrees that he/she is both a participant and an operator.
  3. Each party pays a premium to the scheme which is then invested in an Islamically acceptable way.

  1. Very interesting. I’m not sure Islamic buyers are really aware of such an insurance scheme because although we do plenty of shared sales no one has mentioned something like this.
