Commenting on these accolades, NSB Chairman Jayaraja Chandrasekera said: “Annual Report reflects ‘Our ethos ... our strength’, and it highlights the Bank’s position as one of the strongest and safest financial institutions in the country.  Our fifth integrated Annual Report recognises the Bank’s commitment in fostering a healthy, sustainable, and safe savings culture for the nation.”

The accolades won by the Bank are;

Grands for ‘Best of Sri Lanka’ and ‘Financial Data’

Two Gold for ‘Infographics ’ and ‘Financial Data’

“To me, these Awards affirm NSB’s strong commitment to inclusive banking for all Sri Lankans,” said the NSB General Manager/CEO S D N Perera.  Furthermore, he said: “We owe our success to our stakeholders, including our 20.4 million accounts, the State as the sole shareholder and the strong employee base of 4,512.  The Bank’s success is reflected in our Annual Report and it is heartening to see our hard work recognised through these Awards which have been dubbed ‘the academy awards of annual reports’ by the International Financial Media.”
