Articulating his views at the Ceremony, Mr. Alles stated, “I’m pleased to note the exceptional performance of our insurance arm during testing times and would like to congratulate all at HNBA and HNBGI led by the top team, for their outstanding contribution in achieving many ground breaking milestones during the year. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to my team at HNB who are felicitated tonight for their continuous support and the efforts made under challenging conditions. HNB is the only systemically important bank in Sri Lanka with a meaningful presence in both life and general insurance. Given the low insurance penetration levels in the country and the strong presence of the bank, there’s a great opportunity for us to drive both life and general insurance business and add value to the customers of the entire group. I look forward to your continuous support and dedication as always, in navigating through turbulent times and achieving greater heights”.

Sharing her words Mrs. Cooray stated “I sincerely wish to acknowledge the tireless efforts of the Bank, the two Insurance Companies as well as of the network and leadership teams, and I am confident this will be a rewarding night for all of them. This high-spirited gathering is ample testimony of teamwork, bringing us together today to show solidarity in the captivating drive and motivation of these team players. The Group has maintained top tier performance in the past years, taking it over to 2020 having managed to strategically turn away the challenges posed by the Pandemic. With this very triumphant emergence, we are poised to grow well over the coming year, and I request all Branch Managers to extend their fullest support and continue efforts with vigor”.

Mr. Prasantha Fernando shared his thoughts stating, “Today’s commemoration brings together achievers from every corner of Sri Lanka setting stage to celebrate the exceptional performance, and the relationship the Group has cultivated over the years. This strong bond has led HNB, HNBA and HNBGI to grow as leaders in highly competitive markets, also thanks to farsighted leadership, and especially the invaluable input of Corporate Management and Network Management Teams. Whilst extending my heartiest congratulations to all winners, I believe this strong support will continue leading the Companies to end this year on a very positive note”.
