Life at Pak Qatar

Our Key Business Functions


Operations


This function serves as the core of our business and deals with areas of Takaful policy making, policy implementation processes, claim processing, underwriting, new member assessments, medical examinations, systems maintenance and customer assistance. The operations department depends on qualified and experienced industry professionals for its continued growth and success.

Customer assistance is a major area covered by our operations department. All information required by customers related to the policies they have purchased is disseminated by operations. Changes to policies, updates, deletions (servicing) are all carried out here.

Actuarial Services


Actuarial science is the discipline that applies mathematical and statistical methods to assess risk in the insurance and finance industries. Actuaries are professionals who are qualified in this field through examinations and experience.

Actuarial science includes a number of interrelating subjects, including probability and statistics, finance, and economics. Historically, actuarial science used deterministic models in the construction of tables and premiums.

In traditional life insurance (Takaful), actuarial science focuses on the analysis of mortality, the production of probabilistic scenarios, and the application of formulae to produce scenarios from which appropriate policies can be derived.

Finance and Accounts


Finance is one of the most important aspects of business management. Without proper financial planning a new enterprise is unlikely to be successful. Managing money (a liquid asset) is essential to ensure business success, both for individuals and organizations.

Our finance and accounts section is of immense significance to the organization and manages the funds entrusted to us. Core areas of this crucial function include contribution management, investment/fund management, asset management, payment processing, ensuring regulatory compliance, tax management, payroll processing and financial audits.

Training and Shariah Compliance


Training in an organizational context is the field concerned with activity aimed at bettering the performance of individuals and groups in organizational settings. All organizations rely on qualified, competent and appropriately trained individuals for continued success. Being a services firm, this fact cannot be overstated. PQFTL attaches great importance to the training and development of its staff. In a growing industry where technically qualified individuals are hard to find and where the presence of the appropriate mindset is crucial, training serves to bring our workforce up the standards of service expected from top organizations in our industry. Our training department works very closely with our frontline sales staff to ensure our points of customer contact are appropriately managed. Training encompasses skills in three realms: soft skills, product/process knowledge and technical skills training.

Being a Shariah compliant firm, we strive to ensure adherence to its dictates in everything we do. Our Shariah compliance function aims to identify and address issues related to Shariah compliance and ensure new product and process development rely on Shariah principles from the beginning. Shariah audits are also carried out periodically.

Human Resource


The human resource (HR) department is responsible for the well-being of the company’s most important and crucial asset-its workforce. The objective of the department is to ensure the maintenance of a competent, qualified and motivated workforce that can best help to achieve the company’s vision. HR is responsible for hiring and recruitment, compensation management, vision dissemination, personnel management, employee wellness and the maintenance of an HR information system.

One key area of interest for HR is to recruit and select individuals with the appropriate mindset needed to excel in our line of business and help meet our strategic objectives. The formation of a team of dedicated and passionate people is instrumental in helping us to excel in this relatively nascent field of Shariah-compliant finance.
