Jaiz #Takaful Insurance to commence in 3 states

The Jaiz Foundation has expressed readiness to commence Islamic Takaful Insurance in 3 Nigerian states, Kaduna, Kano and Lagos, with the head office being in Abuja. This was disclosed by the Chairman of Jaiz Takaful Insurance, Dr Umaru Abdul Mutallab, who explained that the insurance products give equal opportunity for customers to be owners of the company as well. Also speaking on the operation of the insurance policy, the Managing Director of Jaiz Islamic Takaful Insurance, Momodou Musa Joof, said the company shares profit by 80% to its participants who have not suffered losses. In the meantime, those who suffer losses would have been paid first before the distribution of profit. The element which goes to the needy called Zakat is also distributed before profit is shared. Joof noted that the good thing in Takaful is that, if no loss occurs, the customer's contribution becomes an automatic investment.

JAIZ Bank Breaks Even, Records N158m First Profit

Jaiz Bank Plc, has declared a profit of N157.7 million for the financial year ended December 2014. By this, the bank has broken even after three years of operations as the first and only fully fledged non-interest bank in Nigeria. Chairman of the bank, Dr Umaru Abdul Mutallab said the profit was a feat considering that there was no platform yet for the bank to make income from its treasury management activities due to the absence of Sharia complaint liquidity instruments in the market. He therefore called for a national Sukuk bond, that would give them a wider range of investment opportunities. Shareholders of the bank called on the management to work seriously towards recapitalising it to fast-track its expansion to other parts of the country.
