Our relationship with insurance can be traced back 3 generations to the accomplishments of Basim Amin Faris, who was born in 1903.
A master’s graduate of Harvard University, he co-founded the Arabia Insurance Company in Jerusalem in 1944, which was, ostensibly, the first insurer in the Arab World. The company was forced to relocate to Beirut, Lebanon in 1955, and still operates today.
Basim Amin Faris later authored the seminal book, “Insurance and Reinsurance in the Arab World” (Kluwer Publishing Ltd, London, 1983).
Our focus has always been on building trust through complete transparency and accountability by focusing on:
