Sri Lanka Insurance has major expansion plans for the year 2017 and as the first step in this regard, two full-fledged branch offices joined the network recently at Borella and Ragama.
The Borella branch was opened on March 16 at D.S. Senanayake Mawatha while the Ragama branch opened its doors on 20 March at Mahabage Road. SLI Joint Managing Director Bangsa Jayah, members of the Senior Management and other company personnel took part in the opening.
Special invitees who are valued clientele of the organisation were also present at the events and joined in the inauguration. Chairman of The Chance Sports Lasantha Amarasinghe and Senior Vice President of Asia Siyaka Commodities Dhammika Wedande were among the special invitees at the Borella branch opening while Vice Chairman of Football Federation of Sri Lanka and Chairman of Ragama United Traders Association Naleen Silva was present to open the Ragama branch. Joint MD Bangsa Jayah said Sri Lanka Insurance plans to expand its already 126 strong branch network during the year. “We plan to set up at least 18 branches during this year while we have set our sights on adding 40 branches in total to the next during these two years,” he said. The acceptance of new businesses also took place after the branches were opened.
Both branches would provide all services related to Life and General insurance to SLI clients. The new branches would contribute in a major way towards the improvement of customer services and to make insurance services accessible to a larger part of the population.
