Leena Parwani

Company: ‎iCare Insure

Designation: Founder & CEO

Country: India

Leena Parwani has surged to the forefront of the insurance and financial planning scene in the UAE with her company iCare Insure, which she launched in 2014. Positioned as a boutique consultancy, its services span family estate planning, liquidity creation for business owners, group health insurance, income protection, life insurance and child education plans for UAE residents.

Having moved to Dubai in 2004, when she took up a position within the HR department of the Al Futtaim Group, Leena has based her company around her familiarity with the UAE’s work environment, diverse culture and labour policies – and her determination to add some warmth and a genuine personal touch to what is seen, perhaps, as a cold, automated industry.

Parwani is also known for her philanthropy, particularly relating to care for families with special needs children.
