Metlico, Egypt Trust team up to activate e-signature for transactions

Egypt’s Misr Emirates Takaful Life Insurance (Metlico) has signed a contract with Egypt Trust to activate the electronic signature service for its transactions, according to sources.

Established in 2005, Egypt Trust (Egyptian Company for Digital Signature and Information Security) is based on the country’s Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA), which sets the main basics for data security, protection, and validation of digital signatures.

“We (Metlico) posted 40 percent growth in our premium portfolio during the last financial year 2019/2020,” official sources in the company told Amwal Al Ghad on Sunday.

The company’s total premiums recorded 149 million pounds at the end of last June, they added.
