KEMAMAN, Nov 29 (Bernama) -- Takaful IKHLAS Sdn Bhd, which currently has 10 branches nationwide, will open its 11th branch in Kuala Terengganu in April next year, its president and chief executive officer Datuk Syed Moheeb Syed Kamarulzaman said.
He said Kuala Terengganu was chosen as the location for the new branch due to the encouraging response from the people in the state.
"Despite not having a branch the state, we found that our clients from Terengganu contributed 12 per cent of the company's revenue for the 2008 financial year," he said.
He was speaking to reporters after attending an Aidiladha sacrificial ceremony launched by Air Putih assemblyman Wan Abdul Hakim Wan Mokhtar here Sunday.
Takaful IKHLAS has two customer service centres in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor respectively, and regional offices in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Baharu, Johor Baharu, Sungai Petani, Kuching, Melaka, Kota Kinabalu, Kuantan, Ipoh and Putrajaya.
Syed Moheeb said Takaful IKHLAS would also relocate its headquarters from Petaling Jaya to Bangsar South next year.
At the event, Takaful IKHLAS handed over zakat (tithe) contributions in the form of RM200 in cash as well as daily essentials to 150 poor people from four constituencies namely Air Putih, Chukai, Kijal and Kemasik.
Takaful IKHLAS also contributed zakat assistance of RM10,000 to Persatuan Persaudaraan Islam Terengganu.
