Abstract


The growing significance of takaful industry (Islamic insurance) in Malaysia is expected to foster sustainable economic growth in Malaysia. Further to this, Malaysia is recorded to be the major player and one of the fastest takaful growth in Southeast Asia. As such, family takaful (Islamic life insurance) segment must be competitive and innovative to increase market penetration and compete with their conventional counterparts. This paper aims to propose a simple yet comprehensive conceptual model by identifying the main determinants that drive family takaful demand in Malaysia. An extensive review of literature available has been carried out to achieve the purpose. Several critical factors namely, agency system (al-wakalah), reputation of takaful operators, products and services, marketing and advertising of takaful products, are found to be the main determinants for family takaful demand.
