QIC Group President and CEO Khalifa Abdulla Turki Al-Subaey joins The Geneva Association as first member from Arab World
Updated: 3 July 2013

Qatar Insurance Company (QIC) Group and The Geneva Association announce that Group President and CEO Khalifa Abdulla Turki Al-Subaey has become a member of The Geneva Association.

The Geneva Association is the leading international insurance think tank for strategically important insurance and risk management issues. Its membership comprises a statutory maximum of 90 chief executive officers (CEOs) from the world's top insurance and reinsurance companies. The Association is chaired by Michael McGavick, CEO of XL Group.

Khalifa Al-Subaey, QIC Group President and CEO, said: "I am delighted and honoured to join The Geneva Association as the first representative of the Arab World. Our region offers significant opportunities to insurers and reinsurers: It exhibits strong GDP growth, is home to more than 300 million mostly young and well-educated people and offers a vast pipeline of infrastructure and construction projects. Yet, insurance premiums still account for as little as 1% of regional GDP, compared with 7% globally. QIC Group is committed to making a contribution towards narrowing this gap. I believe that becoming part of The Geneva Association will support this aspiration. Our involvement also reflects the gradual internationalisation of QIC Group's insurance and reinsurance portfolio, with the objective of positioning the firm among the world's Top 50 insurers by 2030."

John H. Fitzpatrick, Secretary General and Managing Director of The Geneva Association, commented: "It is a great pleasure to be welcoming Mr Al-Subaey to The Geneva Association. His membership is a reflection of the pace and scope of economic development in the Arab World and the rapidly increasing development of insurance in the region and internationally. We look forward to Mr Al-Subaey joining our discussions and the insights and perspectives he will bring to Members' discussions. With the addition of QIC our members' companies have total assets of approximately US$ 12 trillion and more than 2 million employees who serve customers in more than 140 countries."

Doha, Qatar, 25 February 2013 – Q-Re’s Board of Directors today announced the appointment of Gunther Saacke as Chief Executive Officer of Q-Re, effective February 24th 2013. Gunther Saacke will lead a team of senior and well-known reinsurance professionals in order to transform Q-Re into a global multi-line reinsurer with a focus on specialty lines. The new CEO and his team are committed to establishing Q-Re as a leading global reinsurance franchise based in Doha, Qatar, with offices in Zurich, London and Bermuda.

Q-Re is a subsidiary of Qatar Insurance Company (QIC), headquartered in Doha, Qatar and regulated by the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority (QFCRA). Gunther Saacke succeeds Ewen McRobbie who led Q-Re since April 2012 and now assumes new responsibilities within QIC Group.

Most recently, he served as Head of Reinsurance at Endurance in London, before going on to lead Novae Re, a multi-line reinsurance operation in the Lloyd’s market.

Based on its proprietary pricing and analytical capabilities, Q-Re will offer lead quotations and product development services with a focus on specialty lines. At the same time property and casualty lines will compliment Q-Re’s product offering, thereby building and broadening long-term, sustainable client relationships.

QIC is pleased to release audited financials for QIC Group for the year ended 31st Dec 2011. 

Download Consolidated Financial Statement 2011.pdf

Published: 03 OCT 2011

Q-Life & Medical, a new Qatar-based insurance firm, sees 'tremendous growth potential' in the country where life and medical insurance remains largely untapped.

Initially, the wholly owned unit of Qatar Insurance Company would provide life and group medical coverage to corporate customers.

The company, with an initial capital of QR100mn, plans to get into the retail segment at a later stage, said Ewen J. McRobbie, Adviser to QIC Group President & CEO.

Q-Life & Medical was granted its license by the Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority in June this year.

McRobbie said Q-Life & Medical would take over from QIC the provision of group medical coverage to corporate customers. Currently, Q-Life & Medical has some 32 staff members, all previously employed by Qatar Insurance Company, and who have considerable ‘medical expenses and life insurance expertise’.

Heading the team will be Mr. Gajula Narayana Rao (Acting COO), who has considerable experience in underwriting medical insurance.

“We realise that many people require private medical cover today with the government planning a national health insurance scheme in Qatar, Q-Life & Medical will be fully quipped to meet the needs of citizens’ as well as residents”. McRobbie told Gulf Times yesterday.

The rationale behind establishing the company is that Qatar requires a specialised medical insurance company for launching new products since the country is on the fast track of development, Mc Robbie said.

Dr Rashwan said he saw a ‘great potential’ to develop the company business as life and medical insurance market remained largely untapped in Qatar.

“Only about 10% of the population has adequate medical coverage in the country, This will obviously grow as more awareness is create about the benefits of medical coverage,” Dr Rashwan said.

Q-Life & Medical was soft launched at a ceremony held at the QIC Corporate Office in West Bay yesterday. Ali al-Mannai-QIC Doha Chief Executive Officer and other senior executives were present.

Q-Life & Medical would operate from the 5th floor of QIC’s Corporate Office.

Established in 1964, QIC is Qatar’s oldest and largest insurer.
