Insurance and reinsurance broker Miller has appointed Razi Sulaiman as a takaful and reinsurance specialist.

Sulaiman joins from Uni Asia Insurance where he was senior manager of reinsurance and will be working with Faris Davidson, a partner with Miller.

“He will be working to grow our treaty and facultative book, focusing on Malaysia, Brunei & Indonesia and with particular emphasis on the takaful (a form of insurance that is compliant with sharia law) sector,” a spokesperson for Miller tells GTR.

Miller is increasing its focus on Malaysia, comments head of Asia Simon Weaver: “We already have a strong position in the Malaysian market and are further strengthening our existing platform while developing new areas in which we can value to our new and existing clients.”

Weaver also anticipates strong growth in the takaful sector.
