HNB reaffirms support to CA Sri Lanka with lead sponsorship for 2013

One of Sri Lanka’s largest private sector banks, Hatton National Bank (HNB) recently reaffirmed its support to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka) by renewing its lead sponsorship for the year 2013.

By way of the lead sponsorship, HNB will support and assist CA Sri Lanka to carry out its numerous educational and professional development activities for the benefit of its members and students, with the underlying objective of helping develop the accountancy profession further.

Mr. Jonathan Alles, Managing Director/CEO of HNB speaking at the event stated that HNB is pleased to renew the lead sponsorship for the sixth consecutive year. He noted that the sponsorship will greatly benefit the Institute to carry out key events planned for 2013/2014.

He stated that HNB’s close association with the institute further reinforces the recognition and respect the bank places on CA Sri Lanka, which is the foremost body and authority on accounting and auditing in the country.

Welcoming HNB onboard once again as a lead sponsor, CA Sri Lanka President Sujeewa Rajapakse noted that HNB’s continuous patronage over the years as a lead sponsor is an endorsement of the Institutes mission to serving the society by promoting and developing accounting expertise while ensuring the highest level of integrity and competence.

“I am very pleased to welcome HNB onboard this year too as a lead sponsor and I believe this partnership will tremendously benefit both organisations alike,” Rajapakse added.

Identified as the premier private sector commercial bank in Sri Lanka, HNB has been acknowledged globally by The Asian Banker as the Best Retail Bank in Sri Lanka for six consecutive years for its outstanding performance from the year 2007 to 2012.
