Sampath Bank was rated amongst the Top 1000 World Banks 2020 by the UK’s Banker magazine on the 50th anniversary of the rankings. “It is an honour to be ranked alongside the world’s leading financial service providers in the Banker magazine’s Top 1000 World Banks 2020,” stated Nanda Fernando, Managing Director of Sampath Bank. “Coming at a time when we were faced with challenging market conditions for over a year, this is a reflection of our strong fundamentals. This wouldn’t have been possible without the guidance of our Board of Directors, the support of my entire team at Sampath Bank and the love and trust placed in us by countless Sri Lankans. We will continue to strive to deliver greater value to the nation.”
Earlier this year, Sampath Bank’s asset base surpassed one trillion rupees, making it the youngest bank in Sri Lanka and one of very few in the country’s banking sector to achieve this.
Sampath Bank managed to grow its asset base despite the volatile market conditions during the last one and a half years. This is a true testament to the strength and stability of the Sampath Bank and the confidence placed in it by investors and customers alike.
