Vallibel Finance continued to set the bar soaring with profits before tax (PBT) reaching a high of Rs. 890 Million for the first six months ending September 2020. Total assets crossed Rs. 52 billion growing by 4 percent; resulting in an impressive Balance Sheet, placing the company among Sri Lanka’s largest in terms of assets.
“Vallibel Finance has shown its resilience, owing to prudent management skills and sustainable pursuit of growth. Nevertheless, we consistently remain a step ahead of such external challenges by adopting prudent practices, anticipating customer needs and seeking opportunities to maintain sustainable competitive advantage,” says Vallibel Group Chairman Dhammika Perera.
Deposits, the barometer of public confidence amassed to Rs. 30 Billion, growing exponentially by 8.81% over the previous period. “The first half of the year was turbulent, testing the resilience of the entire country. Yet Vallibel Finance has sailed swiftly through the storm, bettering its own benchmarks, both qualitative and quantitative during a very challenging and daunting period of time. In-timely responses to challenges our staff admirably performed well in implementing our tried and tested strategies well.” says Managing Director Jayantha S. B. Rangamuwa.
