SALAMA posted a net profit of AED 45.27mn in FY 2022, which was a result of the Company’s strategy to extend its leadership position in the UAE Takaful industry led by consistent growth in gross written contributions and prudent underwriting controls, as well as continuing investment in strategic partnerships.
SALAMA’s gross written contributions for 2022 exceeded the billion mark with the Company achieving 1.12bn (2.8% growth) in GWC in 2022 with profits of 45.27mn.
