We are now more confident than ever to reinforce our position as a reference in the region for customer excellence," he further added.
Under the new Trade License stating the new legal name, the company will be liaising with the Dubai Financial Market (DFM) to change its name from ‘Oman Insurance Company PSC’ to ‘Sukoon Insurance PJSC’ on the DFM website.
