Tamweel PJSC, the UAE Islamic home finance provider, reported a net profit of Dh102 million for 2011, compared with Dh26m in 2010. For the fourth quarter of 2011, the company reported a net profit of Dh31m, compared to Dh8m in the same period in 2010.
“A year on from our successful return to the UAE’s home finance market, our positive financial results confirm that Tamweel is firmly back in business,” said Abdulla Ali Al Hamli, Chairman of Tamweel.
“2011 witnessed significant success for Tamweel as evidenced by resuming new business origination and the resumption of share trading. With our solid financial footing and proven business model, Tamweel will continue to play a key role in supporting the long-term recovery of the country’s real estate sector.”
Key to the company’s success in 2011 has been the launch of a range of new products, including 'Home Finance Plus', the UAE’s first integrated home finance programme, which provides homeowners with a wide range of essential services, such as free residential maintenance and free relocation services at no additional cost.
Varun Sood, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Tamweel, said: “Tamweel recognises that the needs of end users have changed in recent years and, accordingly, we have developed products with the right mix of value added services and the highest level of after-sales support.
"Against a backdrop of tough global economic conditions, our pioneering approach has enabled us to recapture market share without sacrificing our commitment to booking a high-quality portfolio of end users and properties. Our success in 2011 is a strong reflection of the positive market sentiment towards the Tamweel business model.”
