Review & Statement

"In 2016, LankaBangla is entering to another growth trajectory. With a larger platform we are well positioned for large scale expansion of our personal financial services and SME financial services. We have been emerging as customer centric financial institution with full range of financial services.”

Dear Stakeholders,

2015 was another year of economic progress for Bangladesh achieving 6.51% real GDP growth surpassing other regional peers. Bangladesh has seen low inflationary environment, high surge in FOREX reserve, relatively stable exchange rate even in global currency market shake ups. Government was less dependent on the banking sector for credit while private sector credit started only slowly picking up. Money market was very vibrant and rate structure has been revised downward several times.
