SCB Asia CEO bullish on Sri Lanka

  • Hong Kong-based Jaspal Singh Bindra sees huge positives in post-war progressive Sri Lanka
  • Says growth reflected in the bank’s business; new corporate biz includes sole financial advisor role for biggest private sector project Waterfront by JKH
  • Global giant is providing rating advisory service; working with Govt. and Moody’s to improve sovereign rating
By Nisthar Cassim
Standard Chartered Bank said yesterday it was bullish on Sri Lanka and the country’s future upside, encouraging it to expand business with new solutions as well as commit more support.
Optimism as well as confidence is coming from none other than Standard Chartered Bank’s CEO for Asia as well as Group Executive Director Jaspal Singh Bindra, who made a whistle-stop yet packed tour to Sri Lanka yesterday.
He met Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa, Central Bank Governor Nivard Cabraal and select corporate clients, while he also addressed the bank’s Sri Lankan team. He also visited the Colombo Port.
“We are seeing huge positives in Sri Lanka, which has been progressive post-war. I was heartened by the fact that all officials and our clients are bullish and on a reforms and expansion mode. As far as we are concerned, we are happy as well. We have grown our business with special support to the infrastructure and tourism sector along with introduction of new world class solutions,” said Baspal in an exclusive interview with the Daily FT.
“Corporates are very bullish and they are talking about expansion plans. This is further validated by our financing to some of those projects. Actually having spoken to some of our clients we realised that they have bigger plans than what we are financing. So that is very positive,” the Hong Kong-based Jaspal added, along with SCB’s Chief Executive Officer of India & South Asia Operations Sunil Kaushal and Sri Lanka CEO Anirvan Ghosh Dastidar.
SCB is the sole financial advisor to JKH’s Waterfront project, the largest private sector investment, as well as supporting the Shangri-La project. In addition SCB is also involved in SriLankan Airlines’ bond and syndication financing project.
SCB is offering sovereign rating advisory services and is working with the Government and Moody’s to improve Sri Lanka’s sovereign rating. SCB was also part of the recent successful sovereign bond exercise, which was oversubscribed by three times.
“Given SCB’s own bullishness on the future and expanded role in recent years, we will continue to increase our investment as well as solutions,” the Asian CEO said.
For SCB 2013 was the best in Sri Lanka, whilst overall South Asia was one of the better performing regions for the Group, despite challenges. SCB, which is the largest foreign bank in India, Bangladesh and Nepal, and a leader in Sri Lanka, is “cautiously optimistic” about the region’s overall prospects for 2014.
Focusing on Sri Lanka’s financial sector, the SCB Asia CEO, who is completing 30 years in banking this year, welcomed the Central Bank’s Road Map for 2014 and beyond in principle and the proposed consolidation within the sector as a step in the right direction to ensure efficiency and stability.
He commended the Central Bank for its contribution to improving macro-economic fundamentals via prudent monetary policy, including keeping inflation at single digit level for several years.
Jaspal, who has been with SCB since 1998, feels Sri Lanka has great potential in tourism, leisure and entertainment, the knowledge economy including IT/BPO, higher education, and shipping and logistics, as well as manufacturing with the ongoing policy support and private sector investment.
He noted that given the unprecedented opportunities in Sri Lanka and the future upside, the country’s challenges include any downturn in the global economy. “As of now indications are that the global economy will improve and if that momentum stays in the next few years that will make a huge positive difference to Sri Lanka.”
Jaspal acknowledged that even with a conflict Sri Lanka was resilient to have posted an average economic growth of over 5%. “In the recent post-war phase the growth has been high at over 7%. The next few years are crucial for Sri Lanka’s takeoff as capacities are being enhanced and investments are flowing in,” he added.

2014 turning point for Lanka’s equity market: Michael Preiss

  • 2014 could lead the way for next 5 years to potentially be one of the best periods for capital market since independence
  • Interest rate below 8%, Price Earnings ratio standing at 11, average country growth rate being 7% a “powerful” combination
  • Stresses that risk of not being in the market and investing is higher than risk of short-term volatility
By Shabiya Ali Ahlam
A top expert from the United Kingdom expressed confidence in 2014 being a vibrant year for the nation’s equity market and urged locals to participate if they wish to benefit from this growth story.
Visiting Director and Economic Advisor of Ceylon Asset Management Michael Preiss noted that when the “compelling” evaluation of the country’s growth is coupled with the fast-paced economic development, 2014 will not only be a turning point for the local equity market but will also mark the start of a very positive period for the nation.
“2014 is a turning point for Sri Lanka. It could lead the way for the next five years to potentially be one of the best periods since independence. With the civil war over and the nation having passed the adjustment period, the road is now free for the capital market to progress,” Preiss told the Daily FT in an interview.
From a market development point of view, he noted the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) is putting a lot of emphasis on new product development to bring more depth and liquidity to the market.
Preiss, who has over 17 years of experience in global financial markets of New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Dubai and Singapore and is a Board Member of the American Academy of Financial Management (AAFM), said this potential was an element that many foreign investors would positively evaluate and conclude as good development since when looking at the Debt to GDP ratio, Sri Lanka stands out from other emerging nations.
When questioned on the importance of increased participation in the equity market, Preiss said: “In an economy that is fundamentally growing, the risk of not being in the market and investing is higher than the risk of short-term volatility. This is why there has to be indexation. Over time it is always better to be in an economy that is growing in the equity market than in cash.”
Highlighting the factors that make investments attractive for 2014, he said the interest rate being around 8% and the Price Earnings ratio standing at 11, along with the country growing at an average rate of 7%, is a “powerful” combination.
However, Preiss opined that despite the fall in cost of money which could lead to market expansion, locals might miss the opportunity of investing in the equity market because in addition to the interest rates, PE ratio and the economic growth combination not being clear, investors would perceive that the stock market performance in the last two years would reflect in 2014 as well.
“The majority fail to appreciate that in the last two years there were very interesting and important changes. One is that the CSE is developing the market by conducting road shows amongst many other initiatives. They are doing all the right things while also attempting to revalue the market at the same time,” asserted Preiss.
To increase participation, he stressed on the need to provide more investment options and for the Government to focus greatly on investor education.

CSE remains an attractive avenue for investment and emerges as a top performer among Regional Stock Markets

Colombo: 

The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) during 2013 provided an attractive prospect 
for investment with a 4.78 per-cent increase in the All Share Price Index (ASPI) and a 
5.79 per-cent yield on the S&P SL20 Index (S&P 20). The ASPI indicated the most 
notable increase in comparison to previous years, where 2012 and 2011 exhibited 
negative percentage changes of (-7.1) per-cent and (- 8.5) per-cent respectively. 

Bank interest rates decreased during the course of the year, following a directive by 
the Central Bank of Sri Lanka to tighten monetary policy; interest rates (Average Weighted 
Fixed Deposit Rate) have dropped from 13.21 per-cent on 31st December 2012 to 11.96 
per-cent as at 29th November 2013. 

The market witnessed certain selected stocks performing exceptionally, providing 
high yields to investors who diversified their investments over a range of equities. A total 
of 57 companies have given a total return in excess of 15 per-cent year on year for 2013 
(with 26 companies giving a return above 30 per-cent and 31 companies giving a return 
between 15 to 30 per-cent). 

The year also saw a total of Rs.119.4 Billion capital being raised through the stock 
market, with Corporate Debt amounted to Rs.68.3 Billion. The total capital raised during the 
year surpassed that of the previous year which closed at Rs.29.58 Billion. 
The CSE continued to attract foreign investors with a net foreign inflow of Rs.34.1 
Billion (excluding the net flow for corporate debt), building on the net foreign inflow of 2012 
at Rs.40.3 Billion. 
This was supported by Sri Lanka’s higher positioning in regional capital markets, 
being one of the top performers within the region ahead of the Singapore Stock 
Exchange, the Bombay Stock Exchange and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. 

Capitalizing on the attractiveness of the market, the CSE in association with the 
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will host a Foreign Investor Forum in 
Singapore on the 20th and 21st of January 2014 to attract foreign institutional investors. A 
series of local and foreign investor forums are planned for the coming months, to reach 
out to international intuitional and high net worth investors, as well as local investors
In a bid to encourage local investors and better educate existing investors the CSE 
has conducted a number of investor education programs throughout the island and will 
continue to educate the public on the various opportunities for investment available in the 

Sri Lankan Capital Market.  ( Click to Zoom)
