KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 30 (Bernama) -- Takaful Ikhlas Berhad today announced the conversion of its composite takaful licence into two entities to manage its family and general takaful businesses separately.

This exercise is set to bring about a more focused effort to serve its customers better, said Takaful in a statement, adding that the new structure also reflected Takaful IKHLAS’ commitment to the respective businesses to ensure efficient management of capital and resources to create opportunities for continuous growth.

To lead the new corporate structure, MNRB Holdings Bhd President and Group Chief Executive Officer Mohd Din Merican would take on the additional role of President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Takaful IKHLAS Family,

Eddy Azly Abidin, previously the Takaful IKHLAS Senior Vice-President & Chief Business Operations Officer General, has been appointed as the Takaful IKHLAS General President & CEO.
