CAL launches Wealth of Experience insight platform

Investment bank Capital Alliance Holdings Limited (CAL) has launched its “Wealth of Experience” platform to mark its 21st Anniversary.

The platform comprises three pillars; Learn, Invest and Grow. Together, these three pillars provide a platform for CAL to engage with its clientele to share the work done by its award-winning research and insights team.

The “Learn from a Wealth of Experience” vertical brings together CAL’s research and insights, providing views on economies, industries, and companies.

The firm’s in-house research team is a consistent winner at the annual CFA Capital Market Awards, having bagged, for 2021, a suite of awards including; Best Research Team, Gold Award for Best Sector Report and Silver Award for Best Company Report, among many others over the years.

In the “Invest in a Wealth of Experience” vertical, CAL touts many investment opportunities for its clientele. CAL’s Stock Broking arm is one of the largest brokers of foreign institutional funds in Sri Lanka.

CAL’s Wealth Management division boasts assets under management exceeding 80 billion rupees.

Their Investment-Grade Fund is the only double rated fund of its kind in Sri Lanka, enjoying A+ and A ratings from ICRA and Fitch Ratings, respectively. In 2021, CAL’s Income Fund emerged as the best performing fund in Sri Lanka, with annualized returns of 7.91%.

The “Grow with a Wealth of Experience” vertical demonstrates CAL’s experience in helping businesses grow. The firm holds the No. 1 spot for post-war public equity issuances, debt issuances and mergers & acquisitions advisory services.

Since 2009, CAL has helped Sri Lankan companies by advising and managing transactions worth 85 billion rupees over the last 24 months alone. These feats have earned CAL’s Corporate Finance division a coveted place among Sri Lanka’s top 5 players in the capital markets space.

CAL first entered the Sri Lankan market in 2000 as a licensed primary dealer, rapidly evolving into one of only five non-bank licensed primary dealers in the country.

Over the past two decades, CAL has grown to become the market leader in capital markets services, offering a growing list of solutions including wealth management, equity and debt capital markets, mergers and acquisitions advisory, stockbroking fixed income trading and private equity.

CAL has also expanded its footprint internationally, through its entry into Bangladesh’s capital markets, as the first joint venture company to receive trading rights on the Dhaka Stock Exchange.
