We at LankaClear understood that the need of the hour is the availability of convenient and secure financial services to save valuable time of demanding individuals. In doing so, demonstrating accountability, transparency and good governance in everything we do became the pillars of our success. This ingrained value system translated in turn to generate unparalleled financial services to general public and resulted in last year recording the best ever financial performance for the company. Therefore, we consider this accomplishment of winning the coveted Gold award for the second consecutive year as an endorsement to the values that we uphold as well as an encouragement to reach even greater heights.”
