British Islamic Insurance Holdings has selected Capita Group as the sole provider of outsourced services for a range of Takaful insurance policies due to be launched in the UK.

Capita will provide a full, end-to-end front and back office function – from selling and administering new policies to managing the claims process, outsourced customer relations and IT services.

British Islamic Insurance Holdings (BIIH) expects to launch motor and home insurance products before the summer with small business insurance, life insurance, investments, savings and ‘green’ or ethical financial products set to follow.

The contract will be run from Capita’s existing office in Cheadle, which will handle customer sales, servicing and claims management.
