(MENAFN Press) Takaful “ the Islamic alternative to conventional insurance “ represents a radical new insurance business model that is firing a potentially very big emerging market in the MEA. Now in it's third year, the Middle East and Africa Insurance Summit, will be held on 14-15 January 2013 in Dubai, UAE.

The MEA insurance market is characterised by a large number of players in a limited market. With a majority of these being unregulated, there exists a cut-throat price war; demanding a need to set up effective regulations that will see the desired consolidation and fuel commercial growth. Takaful “ the Islamic alternative to conventional insurance “ represents a radical new insurance business model that is firing a potentially very big emerging market in the MEA.

Now in it's third year, the Middle East and Africa Insurance Summit, will be held on 14-15 January 2013 in Dubai, UAE.
