The busy urban township of Mount Lavinia, a bustling hub of activity at any given time of day and the center of development in Southern Colombo, was the location for the latest addition to Sampath Bank’s island-wide branch network.

The 199th branch of Sampath Bank was ceremonially declared opened at No. 294, Galle Road, Mount Lavinia. The occasion was graced by Sampath Bank Deputy Managing Director Aravinda Perera  and other senior officials.  By opening this new branch in Mount Lavinia, Sampath Bank has established a strong presence in the coastal belt from Kollupitiya to Panadura, covering all major towns, thus providing a greater accessibility and convenience to their customers.  Mount Lavinia is city of historical importance as well due to being a central trading point from the colonial era. The historical governor’s residence, which is now a major tourist hotel in the locality, is a ‘must see’ feature in Colombo. The golden sandy beaches attract many local and foreign tourists to the area, making it a thriving business hub for hoteliers, restaurateurs and other cottage industrialists who’s income depend on the tourists’ arrivals.  Understanding the need for financial services of international standards, speed and flexibility in the area, the opening of Sampath Bank’s new branch is a boon that has addressed this emergent requirement.
