The bank maintained the strongest liquidity buffers among the Sri Lankan banks on the list. Its liquid assets to total deposits and borrowings ratio stood at 28.5%, higher than the average of 11.6% in the country. Its CASA ratio improved from 42.7% in 2020 to 47.8%, which was among the highest in the country.

Meanwhile, the emphasis on controlling operational expenses enabled the bank to lower its cost to income ratio from 40.2% in 2020 to 38.1%, the second lowest in the country. In addition, its ROA was higher at 1.3% in 2021, compared with 1.1% in the previous year. These, together with the improvement in asset quality and sound capital buffers, helped boost the bank’s balance sheet strength.
