The government-owned Iran Insurance Company plans to increase its capital from 34 trillion rials ($300 million) now to 100 trillion rials ($870 million) by the time the current calendar year is out in March 2020, said a board member of IIC. 
Mohammad Rezaee said Iran’s largest insurer would be the top insurer in the Middle East in terms of risk retention if it could meet the target.
