A panel discussion at the Summit in progress

The Sri Lanka Investment Summit in Singapore which concluded in the middle of March 2016 attended by hundreds of professionals from various corporations in the financial industry was a major success, organizers of the summit said last week. This was aptly demonstrated in the month following the summit, where the country experienced a complete turnaround with a net inflow of Rs 15 billion, stemming what was a steady decline with outflow of nearly 270 billion rupees in the 12 months preceding the summit, Perpetual Treasuries Ltd, one of the prime sponsors of the event claimed last week. The summit hosted a number of prestigious speakers, including high-profile members of the Sri Lankan government and notable personalities of the finance and commercial world.

“Perpetual Treasuries has made it their mission to connect both local and international investors with opportunities in Sri Lanka’s debt and equity markets, and to support the growth and development of Sri Lanka’s capital markets through the provision of specialized investment services,” , CEO/Head of Group Treasury of Perpetual Treasuries Limited, Kasun Palisena said.
