The trade names change is effective today and will see Noor Takaful General PJSC (Motor and non-motor) and Noor Takaful Family PJSC (Life & Medical) becoming respectively Watania Takaful General and Watania Takaful Family.

It is part of an extensive strategic brand architecture review that was undertaken post the merger between Dar Al Takaful and National Takaful Company (Watania) which completed on the 1st of July 2022 to bring all business lines under the Watania Takaful moniker.
All business lines will share a common logo style reflecting the best features from both merged companies with a combination of Watania’s styled typography and Noor’s infinity symbol.
