World Takaful Conference


Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is pleased to be a strategic partner to the World Takaful Conference (WTC) 2018, the leading global forum for Takaful that has played an instrumental role in the development of the industry for more than a decade by facilitating thought-provoking discussions, producing quality research and generating actionable insights. 

The DIFC is home to a number of companies who provide Islamic Finance and is committed to the development of this sector and although still at a nascent stage of development, the Takaful industry has witnessed rapid growth over the past eight years with its total assets doubling in the last six years. As the industry navigates through the complex global insurance landscape, there is a greater need for its leaders to share insights and deliberate on new strategies to help it grow beyond is niche status. 

WTC serves as a platform to facilitate idea-sharing among industry leaders gathered from diverse parts of the world ranging from key markets for Takaful such as the GCC and South East Asia to emerging markets such as Africa and Europe. The 13th edition of the conference will centre around the theme of “Differentiation, Innovation & Profitable Growth” and will feature:

  • Keynote Speeches by H.E. Ebrahim Obaid Al Zaabi, Director General, U.A.E. Insurance Authority (IA) and Abdulla Mohammed Al Awar, CEO, Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre (DIEDC)
  • InsurTech-focused discussions shedding light on the impact of disruptive technologies on the Takaful industry
  • One-on-one interview with a Shari’ah scholar on Innovation & InsurTech
  • Power-packed CEO Debate discussing The Future of Takaful 
  • Live polling on key issues gravitating around Takaful
  • A dedicated WTC exhibition
  • Host of plenary sessions with industry leaders, regulators, economists, and technology gurus

WTC will take place on 9 April 2018 at the Dusit Thani Hotel.
