Amana Bank was adjudged the Best Islamic Banking Service Provider in Sri Lanka at the Islamic Finance News (IFN) poll conducted in December 2011. The IFN poll, held for the seventh consecutive year takes an unbiased, transparent and all-encompassing approach in selecting the best Islamic banking service providers in the world.

Commenting on this global accolade, Salieh said,

“It is indeed an honour to have won this international award and to be recognised as the best Islamic bank in Sri Lanka. Over the course of last year we were able to achieve many milestones, of which commencing commercial banking operations was the most significant. I would like to sincerely thank all our employees, customers and stakeholders for supporting the growth of the bank which enabled us emerge winners at the Islamic Finance News poll.”

Amana Bank is Sri Lanka’s first licensed commercial bank to operate in complete harmony with the principles of Islamic banking. Guided by its principles, Amana Bank presents a new way forward enriched with honour, humanity, stability and uniqueness.

While being the pioneer and market leader in Islamic banking in Sri Lanka, the bank is focused on capitalising on the growing market potential for this unique banking concept among all communities in the country.
