Islamic Arab Insurance Company, commonly known as SALAMA and listed on the Dubai Financial Market as "SALAMA", has unveiled robust financial performance in its first quarter (Q1) results of 2024, showcasing remarkable growth and profitability.

The UAE's largest Takaful solutions provider reported a topline growth, achieving a profit of AED 17.58 million in Q1 2024. This figure marks a significant surge of 118% compared to the same period in 2023, where profits stood at AED 8.04 million.

Takaful revenue also demonstrated resilience, reaching AED 271.47 million, slightly up from AED 265.23 million recorded in Q1 2023. Despite fluctuations in currency values, net assets remained strong at AED 3,600.39 million, while total equity experienced a marginal decline of 3.46%, totaling AED 634.46 million, primarily due to currency depreciation in Egypt.

Walter Jopp, Chief Executive Officer at SALAMA, echoed Alhajeri's sentiments, attributing the profit surge to the company's focus on underwriting discipline and customer-centricity. Jopp outlined SALAMA's ambitious growth strategy, which encompasses digitalization initiatives and strategic partnerships aimed at prioritizing customer needs and enhancing service delivery.

SALAMA's steadfast commitment to providing peace of mind to customers through its diverse range of insurance solutions remains unwavering.
