NDB’s first-ever Investor Forum draws striking response from market experts

NDB conducted its first-ever Investor Forum on Monday, amidst more than 100 participants representing the investment community of Sri Lanka. Leading stockbrokers, financial analysts, venture capitalists and investment advisors were among the distinguished addressees at the well-attended event.

Speaking at the event, Chief Executive Officer of NDB Russell de Mel said: “It is with great pride that I assert 2012 as a year of phenomenal growth and performance for the NDB group. Strategic divestments within the group as well as the unique structure that allow strategic integration along with the brilliant capabilities of our human capital were the key contributors to this success. We reckoned it was our obligation to share in-depth, the story behind NDB’s stellar performance with the market experts and investment advocates that galvanise the growth of the Sri Lankan capital markets.

 We could not have found a more opportune moment to address the potential investors in the country as our nation itself is at the brink of an era of achievement and exponential growth.”

 “As a truly universal banking conglomerate committed for national development, we have fixed our goals towards positively influencing the emerging economic upsurge. Fortified by a strong capital base and synergised strengths of its unique group structure, NDB is well poised to take on the growth opportunities of the new Sri Lanka. The NDB group is set for enhanced service offerings, across expanded markets and territories with enlightened products and service propositions that would promise seamless growth to our clients, partners, and other stakeholders.

  We have set aspiring goals for the future and are confident in delivering on our ambitions” de Mel further observed.
