Both ZGTMB and ZTMB will continue to operate through its combined network of branches across 13 locations nationwide. Customers will continue to receive quality services from their respective ZGTMB brokers and agents as well as ZTMB consultants.

ZGTMB was incorporated in accordance with the requirements set out under the IFSA, whereby a takaful operator holding composite licences shall not carry on both family takaful and general takaful businesses under one single entity.
