Both companies, subsidiaries of Carson group, each holds 43.34 of the dollar denominated fund.“After much analysis and discussion, it has been decided to consider winding up operations of The Sri Lanka Fund, as this investment vehicle is no longer an attractive structure,” a stock market filing said.
