Ceylinco Insurance PLC was honoured as Sri Lanka’s leading insurer by several independent business ranking organisations recently. 

The LMD 100 listing announced in December 2018 placed Ceylinco Insurance in the 23rd position among all listed companies in the island.

Once again, for the sixth consecutive year, Ceylinco Insurance earned the honour of being the only insurance company amongst the ‘Business Today Top 30’ companies in Sri Lanka. As announced in its edition for 2017/18, Ceylinco Insurance moved up the corporate ladder to the 7th position, achieving a truly unique feat. According to Business Today, financial information reviewed for the selection process covered several aspects which included revenue, share turnover, profit after tax, growth in turnover, growth in profit, return on equity, growth in earnings per share, market capitalisation, value of shares transacted and value additions. 

Ceylinco Insurance PLC Managing Director/CEO Ajith Gunawardena said, “We feel a humble pride as we have been recognised not only on one occasion but many. We extend our deep gratitude to all our customers, shareholders and other stakeholders for their loyalty and for the confidence placed in us.
