Who We Are

CAL is a full-service investment bank with the dream to be 'The No. 01 Investment bank in Frontier Markets'. Our reputation is based on “excellence in execution, research and product innovation. Commencing operations in October 2000, we have established ourselves as a leading player in the financial markets of Sri Lanka. We specialize in originating, trading and investing in debt and equity securities.

CAL’s customary market focus has been primarily to secure corporate clientele while simultaneously developing the retail business. Owing to this traditional marketing format, CAL has built up an enviable database of corporate clientele over the past seventeen years, which has undoubtedly played a role in the company’s success to date.

Capital Alliance Limited commenced operations in the year of 2000 as a registered debt dealer and in 2003 was appointed by the central bank of Sri Lanka as a registered primary dealer. As one of the five non-bank licensed primary dealers in the country, CAL is authorized to distribute fixed income government securities to all investor categories including individual, corporate and institutional investors in Sri Lanka.

Having evolved into a multi-faced organization, CAL now offers a sophisticated selection of structured government debt based investments. Whether clients decide to select from a range of conventional debt instruments or opt for a structured bespoke solution, CAL’s options are designed to ideally fulfill the requirements of diverse clients, both individual and corporate.

Given CAL’s extensive captive portfolio for treasury bills and bonds, clients are assured of the opportunity to secure their borrowing or lending requirements either overnight or for a stipulated period of time. At Capital Alliance, we’re rising to the challenges we face with confidence, perseverance, and strength.
