NDB Investment Bank Sri Lanka, in collaboration with NDB Capital (Bangladesh), both market leaders for investment banking services in their respective countries, is organising Sri Lanka’s first ever investor forum ‘Ayubowan Bangladesh’ to facilitate Sri Lankan corporates to venture into one of the fastest growing economies in the region with a population of over 160 million. 

This gala event which is scheduled to take place at Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo on 16 August, would be graced by many esteemed business leaders and comprise addresses by foreign dignitaries and panel discussions emphasising the growth sectors in Bangladesh and the unique opportunity for our corporates to harness this growth whilst expanding their regional footprint. 

The Chief Guest for this exclusive event will be Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) Executive Chairman Kazi M. Aminul Islam, and the event will include addresses by High Commissioner of Bangladesh to Sri Lanka M. Riaz Hamidullah, NDB Capital Holdings Director/CEO Vajira Kulatilaka, BIDA Director Md. Ariful Hoque, NDB Capital (Bangladesh) Managing Director/CEO Kanti Kumar Saha, and NDB Investment Bank Vice President and Corporate Advisory Head Nilendra Weerasinghe.

The event would also feature success stories of Sri Lankan corporates carrying on business in Bangladesh by Laugfs Holdings Chairman W.K.H. Wegapitiya and LTL Group General Manager (Offshore Operations) Gamini Sarath.

Apart from the emphasis on the key growth sectors in Bangladesh over the next few years, the forum would also focus on the potential rewards of investing in a large frontier market and the requisite approvals and processes that Sri Lankan entities should follow to enter into the Bangladeshi market.

NDBIB is the investment banking subsidiary of NDB Capital Holdings, the largest full service investment banking group in the country holding a complementary business portfolio consisting of fee based and fund based investment banking, wealth management, managing private equity and stock broking. NDBIB has been awarded as “Sri Lanka’s Best Investment Bank” for seven consecutive years by Euromoney and is the market leader in equity, debt and M&A transactions.
