What is Takaful?

Takaful is a mutual assistance scheme based on the principles of solidarity, brotherhood and cooperation. Each participant agrees to pay contribution on the basis of Tabarru‘ (donation) into a fund, namely Participant Risk Fund that will be used to assist each other in times of need. AIA AFG Takaful Bhd. as a Takaful Operator is entrusted to properly invest and manage this fund in accordance with the investment strategy that complies with Shariah principles.

What is A-Mas about?

A-Mas is a regular contribution ILT plan that provides a combination of takaful coverage and

investment. A range of optional benefits is available to be attached to the investment-linked takaful plan to further enhance the takaful coverage.

How this plan works?

The contribution paid for the plan will be allocated to the Participant Investment Fund after the deduction of Wakalah fee, which is the upfront fee deducted as a percentage of the contribution paid. The allocated contribution, upon deduction of Wakalah fee, will be used to purchase units in the fund(s) of your selection at offer price.

If the Participant Risk Fund is insufficient to pay for the takaful benefits, the Takaful Operator will make good of the insufficiency by providing a benevolent loan (Al-Qard Al-Hasan) and this amount will be paid to the Takaful Operator with no profit once the Participant Risk Fund becomes sufficient, before any distribution of underwriting surplus.
