The author of the book, Tushara Jayaratne handing over the first copy to Minister Sarath Amunugama in the presence of SEC Chairman Nalaka Godahewa and Acting Director General Hareendra Dissabandara
The Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) yesterday launched a book titled ‘Ayojanayata Mulapuramu’ with a view to enhance knowledge in investing in the capital market of Sri Lanka.
The book launch was held at the SEC auditorium under the patronage of Dr. Sarath Amunugama, Senior Minister of International Monetary Cooperation and Deputy Minister of Finance.
The SEC has a dual mandate of regulating and developing the capital market of Sri Lanka and this publication will undoubtedly give impetus towards developing the capital market.
There has been a significant increase in domestic investor participation with the growth of the capital market and the SEC is in the view that this book will assist investors to obtain a proper understanding of the various aspects of investing in the capital market.
Furthermore, this publication includes practical and useful topics, i.e. factors to be considered before investing in the stock market, step-bystep process of investing in stocks and unit trusts, common mistakes made by investors when investing in the capital market and how to select stocks.
At present, there is a dearth of books written in Sinhala for investors on investing in the capital market and this prompted the SEC to publish ‘Ayojanayata Mulapuramu’ based on the article series published in the Lankadeepa newspaper.
The book is written by Assistant Director, External Relations and Market Development of the SEC, Tushara Jayaratne.
