Orient Finance PLC received the approval of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka to commence six new service centres in the island, providing an opportunity for the company to better serve their widely distributed clientele. As such, the company will open service centres in strategic locations in Nugegoda, Horana, Negombo, Chilaw, Puttalam and Ratnapura. The company has already begun building the necessary infrastructure to have all six service centres in operation by the end of the first quarter of the financial year - 2014/15.
In light of the present market conditions, Orient Finance PLC has been adhering to a strategic, but cautious expansion policy. The six new service centres will further enhance their existing network which consists of 13 fully fledged branches and four service centres. Whilst creating customer convenience was the driving force behind this expansion, Orient Finance PLC aspires to maintain service excellence across its entire branch network.
Once the service centres are in operation, Orient Finance will work towards upgrading the centres to branches where the entire range of products and services will be made available for their valued customers including leasing and hire purchase, acceptance of fixed deposits, debt factoring and gold loans.
Orient Finance PLC is licensed under the Finance Business Act No. 42 of 2011 by the Monetary Board of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka and has a Rating of BBB- (Stable outlook) from Lanka Rating Agency Ltd. The company is listed on the Dirisavi Board of the Colombo Stock Exchange as well.
