Doha, Sept 19, 2018: Oman Qatar Insurance Company (OQIC), a subsidiary of Qatar Insurance Group and a premier insurer in Oman has been awarded the best performing company in Small Cap (below OMR 25 million) category in Oman. The prestigious award was announced by Alam al-Iktisaad Wal A’mal (AIWA) Award 2017, which is published by United Media Services, the leading Arabic business magazine in the Sultanate of Oman.
The criteria for the nomination of the award were based on various parameters such as business growth, performance, profits etc. for the year 2017. The ranking for the award was performed by Gulf Baader Capital Markets and the results of the listed companies (on Muscat Securities Market - MSM) were validated by KPMG.

As one of the early adopters of digital disruption, OQIC offers personal insurance products (motor and travel) through its highly sophisticated retail online platform, oqic-insured.com. While delivering innovative retail solutions for every segment of its customer base, OQIC strives to consistently enhance its customer service levels and optimise its efficiency to a whole new level.
Renewing focus on further developing its life and medical lines of business, OQIC is well placed to take advantage of the new regulation, which mandates compulsory health insurance for all nationalities residing in Oman.
