Takaful Gambia Ltd. is an Islamic insurance company which began in Banjul in December, 2007. It is based on the principle "al-Mudarabah" or profit sharing contract.

This system of Islamic Insurance is based on the concept of "Takaful" which translated means "joint guarantee".

With this in mind policy holders of TGL will be entitled to earn revenue on the premium in consideration for their use of TGL's products subject to the announcement of profit.

Their policies include Banca Takaful, fire, travel, personal accident, marine, medical and general car insurance policies that cover most liabilities.

Membership is open to all individuals irrespective of their religious beliefs.

All investment choices and operational issues are supervised by a Sharia Advisory Council in Gambia.

Claims Procedure:
It is the aim of Takaful to settle genuine claims in a timely manner however, prior to making any claim it is strongly recommended that you read fully and comprehend the small print on your policy.

This should be made clear to you when you first apply so if not then you should ask questions pertaining to the relevant policy.
