Aswin De Silva, Chairman of National Savings Bank of Sri Lanka

The National Savings Bank has recently won the Best of Sri Lanka Award for its Annual Report – 2015 by ARC Awards, one of the most sought after annual report rating entities globally. Event was held recently in New York, USA.

The story of the National Savings Bank is as unique as its history. Although the Bank was established in 1972 by an Act of Parliament, its beginnings reach as far back as the early 19th century, when the idea of a savings bank was first born. NSB was formed through the amalgamation of four long-standing institutions that were dedicated to providing financial services to all Sri Lankans – not just the affluent. It is this inclusiveness, which enables the people of our country to be more resilient in the face of the financial ups and downs of life.  

The Bank is also a conduit by which the people of Sri Lanka become stakeholders in the country's development. The money deposited in this State-owned, specialised savings bank is reinvested to support national policies and initiatives that contribute to a prosperous Sri Lanka. In turn, the people's hard-earned savings are guaranteed by the Government. The Bank's keen focus on good governance, risk management and compliance is a key contributor to its success.
