"Takaud is now centre stage within the Mena Savings and Pensions debate and is committed to providing both nationals and expatriates with the best possible solutions to address their long term financial needs," he noted.
"Our Savings & PensionExecutive Training Programme reinforces our expertise in the market and reaffirms our reputation as the provider of choice for Savings and Pensions," added Van Biesen.
