Takāful - Insurance

The Islamic system of insurance is based on mutual cooperation - the word means ‘guaranteeing each other’ - the sharing of investment profits and net underwriting surpluses. In essence, it is a form of Shariah-compliant mutual insurance and as such it shares the cultural heritage of Western mutual insurance associations.

Alberto Brugnoni chairs since its inception in 2007 the annual 'International Takaful Summit' (ITS) held in London, and since 2009 he is a session-chair of the 'World Takaful Conference' held each April in Dubai.
