BH also wants in on Islamic insurance

<p>With strong support from a government dominated by the Ennahda party, Islamic finance has become an El Dorado of sorts for Tunisia&rsquo;s financial establishments. And this despite the fact the constituent parliament hasn't yet adopted the least regulation for such operations which were taboo during the days of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. An affiliate of the state-owned Banque de l'Habitat (BH), Assurances Salim, is poised to break into the market for Islamic insurance and re-insurance. In the works since last year, the operation will lead to the creation of Attakafoulia, a limited liability company with an initial registered capital of &euro;5 million.</p>
