Mr Tobias Frenz of Munich Re shares some ideas to approach the dilemma from an actuarial perspective.
Mr Tobias Frenz is Managing Director, Retakaful & GCC - Life with Munich Re Underwriting Agents (DIFC) Ltd.
It's not the bread and butter for the takaful sector, and it's perhaps something for the longer-term," says Mr Tobias Frenz, Chief Executive of Kuala Lumpur-based Munich Re Retakaful.
