Sri Lanka's standards in the area of banking and finance are on par with the world's best in terms of services and expertise and professionals in the field.
The financial sector comes under the purview of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka which is one of the most liberalized and developed in the region, yet another feature that puts the country on par with the developed nations.
Liberal policies and a lucrative business environment have made the island nation an attractive location for several global banking firms to set up operations, complementing a strong local network of investment and commercial banks. These are further supported by liberal policies, attractive facilities and concessions such as tax concessions and repatriations on both capital and income.
Sri Lankan companies are active in areas of transaction management, finance, financial planning and analysis, general accounting, treasury and risk management and tax management.
