The “Invest Sri Lanka Investor Forum” organized by the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) and the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) in association with stock brokers in Sri lanka (CSE Member Firms) and leading listed companies was held yesterday (October 16) at the Sofitel New York receiving an unprecedented response from the Investor Community in New York.
The Invest Sri Lanka Investor Forum series is steered with the objective of promoting investment in Sri Lanka among institutional investors and to build strong interest among the investor community based in key global financial hubs.
CSE’ decision to host the Invest Sri Lanka event in New York, comes on the back of considerable foreign activity in share market investments in Sri Lanka during 2017. There has been a net foreign inflow of Rs. 40 billion recorded year-to-date in the primary and secondary markets.
“Foreign investors have shown confidence towards investing in Sri Lanka as they feel that most counters are undervalued and offer significant upside in the medium term” commented the Director/Chief Executive Officer of First Capital during an interview given in early September 2017.
