Sampath Bank PLC has been ranked fifith in LMD’s Most Respected Entities in Sri Lanka 2021 rankings, based on a survey commissioned and conceptualised by LMD and conducted by Nielsen.

The rankings are based on ratings received from a sample of 800 respondents – managers and above – from listed companies on a set of 12 different attributes.

Continuing its steady year-on-year rise in one of the country’s most prestigious corporate leaderboards, the bank has moved up from the ninth place in 2018 to the fifth place in 2021, despite the challenging market conditions during this period. 

Furthermore, Sampath Bank has emerged as the highest rated bank in nine out of 12 of the attributes surveyed for this year’s rankings, viz., corporate culture, dynamism, honesty, HR and people management, innovation, management profile, national perspective, quality consciousness and vision. The bank has been ranked ahead of larger, older players in the banking industry 
in these areas.

These outstanding ratings given to Sampath Bank by representatives of some of the country’s leading enterprises are a testament to the high esteem in which the corporate sector and the nation at large holds the bank. This is shaped largely by the bank’s steadfast commitment to delivering greater value to the nation through its focus on innovation and service excellence.

It is worth noting that Sampath Bank has consistently been rated particularly high on honesty and national perspective. This reflects the brand’s trustworthiness and its significant contributions to 
nation building. 

“We are honoured to see our peers in corporate Sri Lanka rate us amongst the Top 5 Most Respected Entities in the country. It is our honour to emerge as the highest rated bank in nine out of 12 attributes being surveyed. Earlier this year, we were ranked as Sri Lanka’s ‘Most Loved Bank Brand.’ We are grateful to our customers, business partners and the nation at large for their love, respect, and trust,” said Sampath Bank PLC Managing Director 
Nanda Fernando.

“These rankings are a result of the vision and guidance of our board of directors and the commitment and relentless efforts of my team at Sampath Bank. Inspired by these awards and recognition, we look forward to delivering innovative solutions that add value to the nation, as we continue to present the future of 
all Sri Lankans.”
